Amarillo – “The Yellow Rose of Texas”
Amarillo is the 14th-most populous city in the state of Texas and is also the largest city in the Texas Panhandle. It is a unique and history-rich area located where the southern plains meet the desert and Amarilla is the perfect mix of old and new Texas traditions.
Amarillo is considered the regional economic center for the Texas Panhandle as well as Eastern New Mexico and the Oklahoma Panhandle. The availability of the railroad and freight service provided by the Fort Worth and Denver City Railroad contributed to the city’s growth as a cattle-marketing center in the late 19th century. Today, the meatpacking industry is still the largest employer in Amarillo but other industries include petroleum extraction and helium. The city was once the self-proclaimed “Helium Capital of the World” for having one of the country’s most productive helium fields.
