It's Amarillo or bust! This afternoon visit the Jack Sisemore RV Museum where you won't believe the selection of antique RVs on display. From the world's oldest Airstream to a hippie Volkswagon Microbus, you'll see it all at Jack's. Then, check into your hotel before a fun evening ahead. At 6 o'clock the Coors Cowboy Club Cattle Drive goes right through downtown Amarillo. Then, take your seat at the Big Texan Steak Ranch & Brewery for a delicious dinner with your travel mates. The Big Texan challenge is that if you can eat a 72-ounce steak with all the fixins' in an hour, you get it for free. But it you don't, it'll cost you about 75 bucks.

Bring your hunger to the Chuckwagon dinner hosted at the State Park. You'll cap your evening off with the musical "Texas!" The talented cast reaches into the past to reveal the struggles, strengths, celebrations, burials, and politics of the early settlers, cowboys and Native Americans. This is the best-attended outdoor musical drama in the United States and you'll see it all from your seat nestled in the beautiful Palo Duro Canyon amphitheater.
