Standing tall as the crown of the Texas Panhandle, Amarillo is ideally located for nationwide interstate commerce; it has a highly diversified economy, enjoys some of the Southwest’s finest schools, medical facilities and cultural centers, and has the state’s best year-round climate.
Amarillo is the center of the 26-county Panhandle region. It has over 190,000 residents and the population for Potter and Randall County surpasses 249,000. As a crossroads for Interstate 40 between Oklahoma City and Albuquerque, as well as Dallas-to-Denver traffic, Amarillo is the hub for major north-south and east-west transportation.
The name Amarillo is from the Spanish translation for “yellow.” Under skies which are sunny or partly sunny 351 days a year and a temperature that averages 59 degrees, golf and many other outdoor activities are common year-round. With its magnificent sunsets and glowing hospitality, Amarillo is truly a jewel across a region of Texas known as the “Golden Spread.”
