Amarillo: The Yellow Rose of Texas

Amarillo, Texas Amarillo, Texas is located in the heart of the Texas panhandle in what as known as the Llano Estacado or "Staked Plains" region. It has relatively flat geography and a semi-arid climate which make it ideal for ranching. Amarillo, TX was established in 1887 and takes its name from the Spanish word for yellow because of the profusion of yellow flowers around Amarillo Lake. The current population of Amarillo is around 186,000 spread over an area of more than 90 square miles. The residents and businesses of Amarillo are largely self-supporting, as the nearest major city is Oklahoma City, which is nearly 300 miles away.

Amarillo, Texas' industry centers around ranching and meat packing and has almost since its establishment. In modern times the economy has branched out to incorporate more variety (and therefore more resistance to recession). It now includes petroleum and helium extraction and refining, manufacturing, and the growing of crops such as soybeans, corn, wheat and cotton. Local colleges such as Amarillo Collage and the nearby Texas A&M University provide employment opportunities for professors, researchers, and teaching assistants.

After-hours hobbies in Amarillo, Texas are much the same as they are in other parts of Texas: the population is heavily into playing, coaching and attending football games, especially at the high-school and college level. Gun clubs are also popular, as are horseback and cattle competitions like rodeos and roundups. The more outdoorsy citizens favor horseback riding, hiking and exploring nearby scenic locations like the Palo Duro Canyon State Park. There are also some extremely eccentric pastimes that draw tourists in from all over, like challenging oneself to eat an enormous steak, digging old Cadillacs into the ground nose first, and creating artwork out of old road signs.
