A Little About Amarillo
Located in the center of the Texas Panhandle, Amarillo is close to some outstanding
natural attractions including the Palo Duro Canyon, the second largest canyon system in the country after the Grand Canyon. the "grand
canyon of Texas" is located just a few miles to the south of Amarillo. Palo Duro Canyon
State Park is open year round and in summer lends a spectacular backdrop to the musical
production "Texas." Other popular attractions include the zoo, museum of art, and
the Wonderland amusement park.
Located within the main building of the School of Pharmacy is the Texas Pharmacy Museum, open to the public. This treasure-trove of wondrous artifacts is a testament to
just how far Pharmacy has come in its long history.
The city of Amarillo straddles the counties of Potter and Randall, making them two of the 49 metro counties
in the state. Amarillo is home to the Amarillo Art Center, the Amarillo Little Theater,
the Amarillo Symphony, and many museums in the panhandle area, including some dedicated to the rich heritage
of the West. A taste of this heritage is offered by way of "cowboy" breakfasts and
dinners at area ranches.
While Panhandle weather can be tricky and sometimes severe, the winters are usually
mild and snowfall infrequent. Summer days are hot, but dry with an annual average
humidity of 56%, and evenings are a blessing with moderate temperatures, extended
daylight, and cool gentle breezes. Both spring and fall have warm day temperatures
with cool nights. Sunsets and lightning storms can be spectacular!
Come Play, Come Stay!
