When you consider purchasing a home, one of the things that you look into is the types of activities and places of entertainment that are available.

Contact IPS Amarillo today to learn how you can make your home in the Yellow Rose of Texas, and let us guide you to the right lease-to-purchase home for your family.

Cadillac Ranch

Created in 1974 by Chip Lord, Hudson Marquez, and Doug Michels, this art lover’s playground features 10 Cadillacs that are half-buried nose-first in the ground. It is open 24 hours a day and is free to everyone. Make sure to bring your own bottles of spray paint and have fun creating unique new designs on the cars. There are two trash cans provided for you to dispose of your painting materials when you’re done.

Palo Duro Canyon State Park

This state park is regularly voted in the top 10 parks in the entire country! In fact, if you enjoy hiking, mountain biking, or horseback riding, then be sure to plan enough time to enjoy each of these activities. If camping is more your style, then make sure to get the proper permits and reservations. Don’t forget to pack your camera to capture some of the stunning wildlife, including two threatened species — the Palo Duro mouse and the Texas horned lizard.

Wonderland Amusement Park

If you are looking for a day full of fun and adventure that the whole family will remember, then make sure to stop by Wonderland Park to experience roller coasters, thrill rides, water slides, and more. Wonderland offers much more than an average amusement park as you’ll find miniature golf, rides that are perfect for younger children, and classic arcade games. Don’t forget to pack your sunscreen as you enjoy your time in the sun.

Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum

The PPHM works to collect and preserve the heritage of the Panhandle-Plains region of Texas and other related areas of the Southwest. Two of the permanent exhibits allow you to explore what life was like living in a pioneer town and living on the plains. From paleontology and geology to archaeology and textiles, you will find many things to learn about and explore as you discover the rich history of this area.

Amarillo Zoo

You can explore mammals, reptiles, birds, amphibians, and invertebrates with the whole family. Open seven days a week, the Amarillo Zoo is affordably priced every day, except for Mondays, which are half off for all ages! Remember to pack binoculars to make it easier for your child to spot animals that can sometimes be difficult to spot due to their size or camouflaging abilities.

Amarillo has so many wonderful things to offer your family. While we welcome your visit, we hope you’ll fall in love and want to stay. If you’re ready to call Amarillo home, then be sure to contact IPS Amarillo to look at all of our lease-to-purchase homes. Call today to learn more!
