What Bert Has To Say About Amarillo Metro Area

Set in the middle of the rugged plains of the Texas Panhandle, Amarillo is a true “cow town” of cowboys and ranch life, with some color left over from its glory days as a watering hole on legendary Route 66. Today the area is accessible by modern transportation, and modern heating and air-conditioning have tamed the harsh plains environment. These changes have led to population growth and buildup of the downtown area, but other than steakhouses and a few museums and historic sites, cultural amenities outside the native Western culture are about as scarce as trees.
