MAKE Canyon HOME

Gateway to Palo Duro State Park, home to the outdoor epic drama TEXAS, West Texas A&M University and the site of the oldest and largest historical museum in the Lone Star State. Canyon has captivated the hearts and imaginations of visitors from around the world. Located on Interstate 27, just 15 minutes south of Amarillo, Canyon is a bustling community that has successfully combined a progressive attitude with small town friendliness and charm. Nestled in the middle of the Texas Panhandle, Canyon claims a rich history based in cattle and ranching, and a heritage rooted in the pioneer spirit of the West. A temperate climate with more than 250 days of sunshine annually, a low crime rate and excellent education facilities all contribute to making Canyon a great place live.

TOP SCHOOLS, TOP OPPORTUNITY

Top test scores and a 99% graduation rate have earned the Canyon K-12 school system national recognition in U.S. News and World Report rankings, while accolades like Princeton Review’s “Best of the West” are routine for West Texas A&M University, where cutting-edge wind energy research and expanding agricultural programs are putting WTAMU on the map in more ways than one.

LOW COSTS, LOTS OF CHOICES

With housings costs just 81% of the national average, dollars stretch further in Canyon—and so do housing choices, with more new homes scheduled for construction in the county.
