Located in the Texas Panhandle, Amarillo is known for its western feel. With cattle ranches and open spaces, Amarillo can get very hot in the summer, and the winters can also be cold with some inclement weather. Travelers to this area enjoy visiting during the spring and fall when the weather is moderate. Book a horseback riding tour at one of the area ranches for a day of fun, and be sure to visit a BBQ restaurant for some traditional Texas BBQ. Home2 Suites by Hilton Amarillo is a ten minute drive from Cadillac Ranch with rooms starting at $119 per night. Luxury Inn & Suites Amarillo is affordable at $44 per night, has a free airport shuttle, and is close to attractions.
