All roads and railways lead to the Panhandle

Posted on: July 20th, 2012 by Texas Campgrounds No Comments

The Texas Panhandle has long been known for its association to Indian settlements, cattle drives and most notably the railroads passing through its expansive plains. Now the area is home to many museums, historical sites and scenic drives through canyons.

Explore rich history and art at the Panhandle-Plains Museum in Canyon, Texas. With rotating exhibits, the museum covers everything from dinosaurs to modern art, with special focus on Indian settlements and the art and culture they still influence today.

View all the natural beauty of the area with a tour of the Palo Duro Canyon State Park. Early nomad tribes hunted wooly mammoth in these canyons, but modern tourists like to just drive through the area or take a hike for a safer way to enjoy the park.

And stop on Historic Route 66 in Adrian, the town that claims itself as the “geo-mathematical center” of the route. You can’t stop in Adrian without stopping at the Midpoint Cafe for a cup of coffee and one of their famous ugly crust pies. The “Flo” character from the movie Cars was even based on former cafe owner Fran Houser.

The Texas Panhandle is a scenic stop on any American road trip, and it’s certainly a friendly place to stop and camp with your RV. Use our Find a Park tool on the Texas Campgrounds website to make your reservation for a Panhandle vacation today!
