Cadillac Ranch, Amarillo

(2.9/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
At the public art installation Cadillac Ranch, see the vision of three individuals who created a sculpture from Cadillac cars in the 1970s. Chip Lord, Hudson Marquez, and Doug Michels, members of the art group Ant Farm, repurposed old and unused Cadillacs into this installation based on their aesthetic interest in cars and their desire to find a new, unorthodox form of architectural work. The cars, which are tilted and partially buried into the ground, are now covered in graffiti and paint from visitors over the years. When you stop by this surreal site, a short walk from the highway, take photos or add your own art to the automobiles. Make Cadillac Ranch a centerpiece of your Amarillo vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Amarillo itinerary maker.

  • A blast for a different thing. Kids loved it. Photos will speak for themselves, we enjoyed a couple of hours and bought cheap paint to do it. Might not be as fun for just adults.  more »
  • Not a destination site but if you've been in the car driving a long ways then do stop. Much more fun with spray paint, but if you didn't pick any up along the way, there will probably be discarded can...  more »
