This is the biggest draw of this area! It is beautiful!! The lighthouse trail is highly recommended. Even if you do a portion, you will see great scenery! Also check out the outdoor play ‘Texas!’ in the amphitheater there.

Park
“Plan a date with nature by visiting an incredible tourist attraction in Amarillo, the Amarillo Botanical Gardens. Take a break and pause from the bustling life of city and spend some quality time with yourself by visiting the scenic garden. Take a stroll in the garden and enjoy some vibrant flowers which are here up for display. Also, if you love photography, then the Amarillo Botanical Gardens will make sure that you get plenty of photographic opportunities. Come and embrace the nature in the best possible way!”

Amusement Park
“Want to add a tinge of thrill and adventure to your Amarillo trip? Then a visit to Wonderland Park can be a good option. The park is well maintained, nice and very well organised. The park has some interesting amusement rides and many events are organised throughout the year. If you’re travelling on a low budget and want an attraction which has a lot to offer for the price you’re paying, then Wonderland Park is that place! Take your kids along with you and have some gala time here.”
