Amarillo, Texas Tourist Attractions

Parks, Museums, Sightseeing, ...

Amarillo may seem like Cowboy City Central, but it has a healthy, humorous touch of the strange. You can't pass up a look at the Helium Monument (built, indeed, to honor the helium molecule). Nor can you pass up Cadillac Ranch, a Stonehenge built of classic cars. But once you've given the more bizarre side of Amarillo a look, check out the dramatic Caprock Canyon and Palo Duro State Parks. Stop by Alibates Flint Quarries National Monument for ancient history with an eerie natural beauty. Lake Meredith National Recreation Area is another natural wonder in Amarillo's backyard.

Less natural, but also very fun is Wonderland Amusement Park, an "old school" park the kids will love. Don't miss the Amarillo Zoo, or the many art galleries and museums in the area.

Walk down winding paths through evergreen and flower gardens in the acres. A glass pyramid rises above the open-air plants and the milieu changes when you walk inside to tropical palms and flowering trees. This is the Mary Bivins Tropical Conservatory.

  • 2601 Dumas Drive at Thompson Park, Amarillo
  • Amusement Park
  • 806-383-3344

Wonderland Amusement Park is an old school amusement park and you can pay for tickets instead of a day pass. Don't expect exorbitant fees of "five tickets per ride," though. The rides are very reasonably priced and great fun besides. Where else can you ride the Texas Tornado?
