Explore the Route 66 Historic District of Amarillo


Added by Tammy Molepske

The largest city along the Mother Road offers the quirky appeal and true road-warrior essence of Route 66.

Just off I-40, this charming area is worth stretching your legs and working the camera lenses. I took Georgia Street a few minutes northward to Sixth Avenue and easily found parking near several welcoming shops. I certainly perused the local fares for merch and memorabilia, as there were so many fun treasures in the many antique stores and gift shops. One can stroll about for several blocks and here is the real gem...the street is filled with unique signage, beautiful murals and an ambitious dedication to the history of Route 66. I enjoyed an early evening stroll with the sun beginning its descent, which lends to excellent lighting and added dynamics to the subjects within the lense.
