My husband and I are moving to Amarillo this summer, can anyone give me any information that might help us find a nice apartment (with a pool) or house for rent in Amarillo or the surrounding areas? Maybe a good realator. We are 39 & 46 with no children,(at least not until the summers and then it will be older teenagers) at home. We would prefer something within a 30 minute drive or less to the Amarillo Airport. If you could give us ANY information about Amarillo (things to do, lakes, rivers, weather info, night life) it would be such a help. ANY and ALL information would be SO appreciated. Thank you bunches!!!!

Nearly any place in Amarillo is accessible to the airport, simply because it is bisected by two interstate highways -- IH 40 and IH 27. Amarillo is a wonderful family place. Lots of parks, churches, good restaurants. Really good college (along with music presentations and theater). Four-year university only 30 miles south. Exceptionally good art museum (for the size of the city). A symphony and ballet company. Several outlying lakes, but the big lake is Lake Meredith, north of Amarillo. It has no beaches, as such. The very best thing, though, is that Santa Fe, NM, is only five hours away! And, you can also make it to Vail, Colorado, in a day's drive!

Expect a lot of snow and a tremendous amount of wind. The wind is especially ugly in the spring. However, good news is that, even in the dead heat of summer, the nights are cool. When I lived there, I never ran the AC at night; just opened the window. When my young son was playing baseball at a night game, I had to have a jacket before the game ended. And don't forget to invite all your friends/family down to see the show "TEXAS" in the amphitheatre at Palo Duro Canyon. The story line is schmaltzy, but the production is fabulous! Your hearts will beat harder when you see the horseman riding along the rim of the canyon with a Texas flag! Palo Duro Canyon is sort of a mini-Grand Canyon; however, Palo Duro has much more history. And please, please plan to see the museum in Canyon (at the university). It is sort of an unknown treasure. As a connoisseur of museums, I rate this one very highly for its unique collection of Indian culture.

I lived in Amarillo for 38 years. As you know, by now, It is nothing like AR. All the roads are east and west, on a grid. Much different from the mountain road. One of the things I truly miss (besides my Family) Is the BIG BLUE TEXAS SKY! Moving is always hard. Amarillo is a good town.

If you don't mind racist attitudes, go for it!
If you get in trouble, there's justice for some.

Hi everyone, me and my husband are going to be moving to Armarillo Tx due to my husbands new job and I have wondering how racism is out there? I'm Mexican mixed and my husband is African American. I have been doing a little research about Armarillo and it sounds like a pretty nice place. I was also wondering what parts of town I should look to live in. We are both in our early mid twenties but we have a good head on our shoulders and we don't want to live in the ghetto. Also what is there to do out there for fun? We are from California but are both open to experiancing new things, places and cultures. If anyone can help me out with these questions that would be awesome thanks.
