Owner description: 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.

If you are going for coffee or dinner, great. Some live music and brews for those looking for that. A number of antique shops for antiquers. I was disappointed there weren't more little shops, local artisans, etc. There lots of opportunity to make this a great destination.

We ate dinner at Braceros. Fantastic!

If you enjoy visiting old downtowns, you will like this area and its many antiques stores, which cover the gamut from junktique to high end. You can visit a huge antique mall that used to be a municipal swimming pool, then a nightclub--the pool was floored over to make a dance floor. In another small store is an art gallery where the owner makes jewelry out of chunks of spray paint that were part of the Cadillac Ranch until they fell off the cars because of their weight. It's actually quite pretty, with each layer a different color, creating unique patterns. The area is compact, and the merchants are friendly.

Cute shops, art galleries, antique malls. Wrong location on the Trip Advisor map. Stay on 6th street but go 3 miles west.

After visiting the visitors centre in Amarillo , they recommended we visit this old strip of mother road on Sixth Street. Tons of Americana history and restaurants here. So,glad we came and ate at the oldest restaurant. The Nat is amazing and all the vendors sold unique items and the history of this buildings past is amazing. Elvis once played here.

We drove from Chicago to Arizona and made stops at many of the Route 66 locations. It was fun to see the many different places that are icons of Route 66. We hope to one day go all the way to the Santa Monica pier where Route 66 ends. We really enjoyed seeing the sights in Amarillo, TX and would stop there again.
