Awesome Autumn Adventures Await in Amarillo

Fall is a magical season. It helps us transition away from the blistering heat of a Texas summer and helps build anticipation for the approaching holiday season. We can pack away our shorts and tank tops and cozy up in rich flannels and cute boots. Pumpkin spice everything returns to the delight of many, and pumpkin patches start popping up, serving as perfect backdrops for autumn photos and endless fall fun.

Amarillo, in the Texas panhandle, is a charming spot for a fall escape. The average temperature in September in Amarillo is in the low 80s, and the average temperature drops to the low 70s in October. The cooler temperatures make Amarillo an idyllic spot to pick some pumpkins, enjoy a hayride and sip apple cider and pumpkin spice lattes all day. So grab your favorite fall attire and book a getaway to Amarillo for some fall and spooky season fun in 2023.
