Father's Day is this Sunday and the panhandle region has so much to offer when it comes to cool things to do as a family. From hitting the water, catching the sports, or catching a show, there is a little bit for everyone and certainly something dad will enjoy!

    Texas Outdoor Musical

    Enjoy the play all about the story of Texas. In it's 52nd year, this is a must see show for anyone in the family. With a treasure as big as Palo Duro Canyon right in our own backyard, it is a perfect place to spend the day with dad hiking, biking, and seeing the show. Be prepared though, it's gonna be a hot Father's Day down in the Canyon this year!
