Our friends at WalletHub made a list of '2016's Best and Worst Cities for Staycations,' and Amarillo was one of the only Texas cities on the list!

Some people believe that you have to travel to a new exotic place to have a great vacation, but that's simply not true! WalletHub.com has a team of analysts that compare America's 150 most populated cities. They compare three key dimensions: Recreation, food, and rest and relaxation. Then each metric is given a number between 0 and 100 and finally they calculate the overall score for each city. This is how they came up with the list of the 'Best and Worse Cities for Staycations.'

Amarillo came in at number 35.

Rounding out the top 10 was:

  1. Orlando, FL
  2. Fort Lauderdale, FL
  3. Tampa, FL
  4. Salt Lake City, UT
  5. Scottsdale, AZ
  6. Atlanta, Ga
  7. Las Vegas, NV
  8. Minneapolis, MN
  9. St. Petersburg, FL
  10. Honolulu, HI

If you're wondering what kind of things you should do for your Amarillo staycation, here are some suggestions!

Take a hike in the Canyon, enjoy an afternoon coffee at Evocation or Palace, check out the new and improved shops in Wolflin, enjoy a great dinner at BL Bistro or Public House, then relax at one of Amarillo's new hotels or grab a festive room at the Big Texan Motel.
