This mile-long stretch of road originally belonging to Route 66, now features shops, clubs and restaurants. Favorites include the Nat Ballroom, currently an antiques store, but a former stop for the Big Bands that passed through Amarillo, and the Golden Light Café, where the best hamburgers in town have been served for more than 50 years.

Wasted 20 minutes sitting at every red light on every block of this city, on a weekend with no actual traffic, and never saw one thing worth taking a picture of. Skip

Nice walk, you can find some cool picture spots, grab a bite or a drink, visit some cute antique or art shops, my favorite was Sonya's gallery, she also recommended Lile Art Gallery, but we missed it as it was closed when we were there.

Bit rough in places but there are a few stretches along the way worth it. Recommend dinner at Smokey Joes. There was live music on the Monday evening we stopped. It was the Route 66 experience i was looking for. But a lot of buildings and businesses have closed up. Can’t imagine what it looked like in its heyday.

If you want to get drunk it will be ok, but it is a bit sad about 66
