Five Fun Things To Do In Amarillo For Spring Break
Spring Break is just around the corner and you probably have a house full of kids! Can’t get away this year, how about a staycation! I always hear people saying, ‘there is nothing to do in Amarillo,’ well we have found a bunch of fun stuff to do.
Spring break is a time for the kids to take a break from school and relax. Some parents get to take the week off others don’t. If you don’t, but would still like for your kids to have a fun time, here are some cool things to do around town.
If you aren’t able to go out of town but would love a little adrenaline rush, head down to Palo Duro Canyon. Yes, you can actually zip line over the canyon. The Palo Duro Zip Line is located right before the entrance of the canyon. They will open this week and stay open until March 30th.
The City of Amarillo actually stocks the different lakes around town with trout or catfish. You can grab your fishing poles and head to McDonald Lake, South East Lake or even Medi Park to name a few.
Sports World is opening up for Spring Break. There is 18 holes of adventure golf, a mile long go‐kart track and kiddie track, batting cages and an arcade room. So pretty much fun for the whole family. Check out there hours here.
There is nothing like a good friendly game of Laser Tag! This is loads of fun. And it’s all indoors so you won’t have to worry about snow, rain, wind or heat. The weather changes all the time, but no worries here.
Yes, believe it or not there is a place in Amarillo where you can do indoor rock climbing. It is fun for the entire family. Not only can you conquer your fears or learn great techniques, you can have fun doing it. Amarillo Rock Climbing House, or A.R.C.H., is located on South Western.
