Back in the day, 1973, Stanley Marsh 3 buried a bunch of Cadillacs in the middle of a field. This has become on of the hot attractions in Amarillo ever since. Tourists can bring out their favorite colors of spray paint and leave their mark on this piece of eclectic artwork.

The original Big Texan was opened in 1960 by the Lee family (who still own it today), and soon the claim to fame was the 72oz steak. People come from all over to see if they can take on the 72oz steak challenge. This is how the challenge is done, you a set at a special table in the restaurant and served a 72-oz. top sirloin steak, a baked potato, salad, dinner roll and shrimp cocktail. You must finish all of this within one-hour and if accomplished you get your meal for free. Plus, some other goodies including T-shirt, a souvenir boot mug and a certificate. Plus, your name on the wall of fame for eating the whole darn thing.

The Grand Canyon of Texas is found right outside of Canyon, Texas. It is the second largest canyon in the United States and it is home to the Lighthouse Peak formation. The canyon is also filled with caves. People travel from all over to experience Palo Duro Canyon.

Not only that each summer you can enjoy the outdoor musical drama, Texas

Groom, Texas is the home of the Largest Cross in the Western Hemisphere. It is a spectacular sight to see. The cross was erected in 1995 and stands 190ft in the air and can be seen from 20 miles away.
