Bishop Hills

 
 

It is Christmas time, so what better than to grab some hot chocolate and go look at Christmas lights. Bishop Hills does an annual light tour through the month of December. In this upscale community, you'll find some of the most beautiful architecture in the state of Texas. And you will see some of the best Christmas displays in the city. Bishop Hills is located just off Tascosa Road and N. Soncy.

This is must for Amarillo visitors. I don't really know what is so interesting about a bunch of cars buried nose down in the ground, but it attracts people from all over the world. You can take your family out there and let them see all the signatures of past visitors. And of course, take pictures with the cars.

Amarillo is filled with hidden restaurants that will blow your mind. It's kind of like you have to be in a certain club to know the best places to eat. One of my favorite places is Coyote Bluff. They make some of the best burgers and fries. it is a local secret that should be shared with everyone. And when you go, be sure to order their chili cheese fries. Yumm!

Amarillo is filled with so many cultural things to do. One of my favorite things is museums. You can take horse lovers to the American Quarter Horse Museum. Here they can read the history, check out pictures and hit up the gift shop. One of my favorite museums is the Amarillo Museum of Art. The exhibits change periodically. Right now you can view Aftermath:Images From Ground Zero. These photographs are incredible and tear jerking. You can also take your family and friends for a road trip. How about Canyon, Texas. They have the Panhandle Plains Historical Museum. This museum is multiple stories and is filled with a ton of history. A great way to spend the afternoon.

This is historical Route 66 and it is filled with tons of stuff to do. Take a stroll down 6th street and visit all the different shops. If you have some family members that love to antique shop, this is perfect. They also have a bunch of art shops and awesome food. Have lunch at Cowboy Gelato or Golden Light Cafe. And on most nights, you can find a venue or two that has live music.

If you are a nature person, you will love this place. And right now, they are holding Christmas in the Garden. You can take a stroll through the lighted decorated gardens. You can enjoy a nice warm drink and listen to Christmas Caroling. It is all free, but this weekend is the last weekend. The garden is filled with plants and flowers that will just make you smile.
