First settled in 1887, Amarillo is located in the middle of the West Texas Panhandle and bordered by New Mexico and Oklahoma. The name Amarillo comes from the Spanish word for yellow, which was inspired by the yellow-colored subsoil in the channel of the main creek. In the early days, most homes were actually painted yellow to commemorate the town’s name. Due to the expansion of the railroad across America in the late 1800s, the town of Amarillo eventually became one of the world’s busiest cattle-shipping points.

Today, The Yellow Rose of Texas is well-known for attractions such as Cadillac Ranch and the Big Texan Steak Ranch.
