Cowboys & Canyons; Amarillo, Texas

What is more American than the cowboy?

Fearless frontiersmen and their trusty horses struck out into the Wild West, an unknown and inhospitable place where only the toughest and most resilient souls dared tread.

Their exploits are the stuff of legends. But what about you? Have you ever wanted to be a cowboy for a day? If so, it’s time to cowboy up!

The Yellow Rose of Texas

Amarillo is located along the famous Route 66, on the edge of the Great Plains in the Texas Panhandle. It’s exactly what you would expect from a western frontier town surrounded by sweeping prairies, deserts and steep canyons.

Its 190,000 residents still celebrate the cowboy way, luring thousands of Old West enthusiasts to experience life on the frontier.


The Heart of Texas; San Antonio, Texas

San Antonio has it all. The River Walk lends to it being one of the most charming cities in America, while The Alamo reminds all those who visit of the struggle our forebears endured to secure the future of the United States.

Full of art, culture, history, gastronomy, revelry and activity to suit every penchant, San Antonio is a delight, and without a doubt the throbbing heart of Texas and the American Southwest. Continue
