Overview

This mile-long stretch of road originally belonging to Route 66, now features shops, clubs and restaurants. Favorites include the Nat Ballroom, currently an antiques store, but a former stop for the Big Bands that passed through Amarillo, and the Golden Light Café, where the best hamburgers in town have been served for more than 50 years.

Amarillo was nothing except the interstate, the Texas Steak Ranch and Caddilac Ranch. Route 66 went throug the downtown area but I wouldn't walk around there and there is nothing to see anyway.

Tuesday morning was pretty dead. Lots of business closed. Walked into a couple of the junk shops. Amarillo is not very interesting so far

We went walking around 6th Street on Saturday afternoon. Parking was easily available. There was an abundance of antique stores and restaurant/bars. It was really cold out so we didn't stay long.

A several blocks long collection of Route 66 memorabilia, restaurants and antique stores. On a nice warm day, you will have a nice walking shopping tour. Golden Lite Cafe is in same location since its opening in 1946.
