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.

like so much of Route 66, it all looks a bit sad abandoned and dilapidated. All showing the signs of being totally bypassed by the freeway

We love the Route 66 history but this section in Amarillo has lost its luster and is fading rapidly. Their is a couple of nice shops but most for the area is sketchy and probably not the place to be after dark on some sections.

Our group loved the shopping at the historic district. I especially loved the Lile Art Gallery where I bought a beautiful pendant made from paint chips from the cadillac ranch!! Too cool! We also had a traveler in our group that tires very easily and...More

Passing through here in the evening was nice. Not sure we would go to shop. It was nice thinking how things were back in the day. 😊

Mainly bars and some stores. The one mile stretch along 6th Street wasn't much to see. Would probably pass on it if we were in the area again.

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.

This mile-long historic district for Route 66 is located at 6th Avenue. The street features locally owned stores many converted from a mix of previously residential homes, motels and entertainment buildings. Visitors can window shop or purchase antiques, memorabilia, souvenirs and enjoy a meal or...More
