Become a Cowboy for the day at the Elkins Ranch or immerse yourself in foliage at the Amarillo Botanical Gardens.
Amarillo, Texas lies in the West Texas region, specifically within Potter County. Amarillo is so named because both Amarillo Lake and Amarillo Creek
contain yellow soil. During 1541, Francisco Coronado ventured throughout Amarillo, Texas. However, the town was not officially established until 1887. In 1918, this marked the growth of the Texas oil and natural gas industries.
Your charter bus will see lots of evidence of that today in the landscape with the old oil derricks that dot the landscape here and there.
There are a number of fun events for your charter bus group to take in. The Best of Texas, Cowboy Morning & Cowboy Evening, Funfest, the Annual Tri-State Fair, Coors Ranch Rodeo, Old West Days & Ranch Riders Rodeo and special events at the Amarillo Civic Center.
