The Panhandle Gives is something that has been a part of our communities for several years now. It is a time to come together and support our great non-profits. It all leads up to Giving Tuesday on November 30th.

When does The Panhandle Gives actually start?

The Panhandle Gives officially kicks off on November 22nd.

This all is a time where if you are trying to decide on a non-profit to support this year that your money can go even further. The Amarillo Area Foundation has an Amplification Fund to help out. Any organization that raises at lease $250 will get a portion of the Amplification Fund. So your money can go even further.

If you are trying to decide who you can help out there are many in the Texas Panhandle who would love for you to choose them. Take a look at this long list and pick one, or two, or however many to help out.

Ranchotel: The Forgotten Landmark of Old Route 66 in Amarillo, Texas

The Ranchotel, located at 2501 W. 6th St., is a product of Route 66's heyday.

When Americans first began long-distance automotive travel, they typically stayed in hotels or camped beside the road. In response, clever entrepreneurs began to build what were called tourist courts. The Ranchotel is one of these.

It was built in 1940 and until recently, it was considered one of the best preserved examples of Route 66's tourist facilities. It was placed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1995 and was well maintained until 2020.

Even now, in spite of the building's fading beauty, there is still the nostalgic air held by many a historic landmark.

Beautiful and Unique Airbnbs of the Texas Panhandle

The Texas panhandle is home to several unique and beautiful Airbnbs located near downtown Amarillo, Palo Duro Canyon, and even The Big Texan.
