Reach out and get plugged in

Acclimating to a new community can be challenging, but Amarillo is one of the friendliest cities in the United States.

In Amarillo, you’ll see smiles everywhere you go and you’ll find it easier than ever to strike up a conversation. Here’s a promise: Go for a walk on our wide streets and you won’t be ignored. People smile at you. Strangers say hi. Motorists even wave as they drive past. Making new friends only requires taking that next step and introducing yourself to people who already are offering a friendly face. We’ll help you get acquainted.
