historical route 66 runs right through old town of Amarillo.
This area has been renovated by communtiy dollars and interest to conserve route 66 history. Almost of all the shops on this street (6th) are antiques, craft shops and galleries. We also have our own art colony called Las Tiendas which is off Route 66 near the hospital district. Some local artist renovated an old motel to house different
artist and their work. Each rent a room of the old motel as
office and studio to work and display their talents. In the middle of this motel is a beautiful coutyard to sit and enjoy.
