Situated in north central Texas less than an hour from the Oklahoma panhandle, Amarillo is a curious assortment of industry and activity, from its early history as a cattle-trading and meat-packing powerhouse to its current role as a manufacturer of military aircraft and the only nuclear weapon assembly plant in the U.S. The Palo Duro Canyon State Park, just outside of the city, is home to the largest canyon system in the country after Arizona’s Grand Canyon. The Tri-State Fair and Rodeo, held each September, has been bringing cowboys and western enthusiasts to the area since 1921, and the city hosts the World Championship Chuckwagon Roundup each summer. The American Quarter Horse Association and Hall of Fame draws many visitors annually, as do the Amarillo Museum of Art and Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum.
