Welcome to Canyon, where the sun always shines, and the fun never stops. As the summer approaches we thought we would recommend some events and places that might be worth your time to check out. Also, take advantage of a 20% discount on all to-go orders at Barrel & Pie, all summer long! Now, without further ado, here is your perfect summer tour guide for Canyon, Tx.

Initial Attractions you simply must visit:

  • Journey into the past as you visit Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum. Discover ancient dinosaurs, explore pioneer town, admire one of Georgia O’Keefe’s finest paintings, and catch the current display of Quanah Parker’s headdress and learn more about Native American Culture. No worries if you find it tough to visit during the week because starting June 14th the Museum will be open until 9 p.m. on Friday nights, and starting on Memorial Day the museum will be open every Sunday as well. Keep an eye out for summer events at the museum, and we hope you’ll enjoy your visit.
  • Strike a pose next to our famous statue, Tex Randall. This famous cowboy spends his days waiting for visitors off of Highway 60 and would love to see you stop by.
  • Spend a day at Palo Duro Canyon. Hike the Sunflower trail, the Lighthouse trail, or if you’re looking for more of a challenge hike the Rock Garden trail. Make sure to pack lots of food and water, especially as the weather heats up. Don’t miss out on their occasional moonlight hikes, the Palo Duro Zipline, and more importantly don’t miss your chance to see TEXAS Outdoor Musical.  
  • The TEXAS Outdoor Musical is a musical that opens up June 1st and runs through August 18th. Taking its audience on a historical retelling based on the settlers of the Texas Panhandle, the show is sure to bring, laughs, tears, and joy to you and your family as you take in the amazing music, the beauty of the Pioneer Amphitheater, and the engaging storyline. Don’t miss out, book your tickets now!
  • Just outside of Palo Duro Canyon is Palo Duro Creek Ranch jeep tours. If you have a little extra money to spend, book a thrilling ride with the Ranch’s jeep tours. Explore the Canyon in a completely different way, as you go off-roading and visit parts of the park that you might not have been able to get to you on your own. Open all days of the week, there is plenty of time for you to book a jeep tour today!
  • Need somewhere to take the kids? Visit Canyon Aqua Park. Laze around in the lazy river, splash in the kiddie pool, or slide down the water slide. Bring your sunblock and get ready to have a blast! The Aqua Park opens May 25th and stays open until August 13th. Admission is only $8, making it the perfect way to cool off in the Texas heat.  
  • For those who are more interested in nature and wildlife, visit Wildcat Bluff Nature Center. Located 3 miles North of 1-40, Wildcat Bluff offers various trails that are open sunrise to sunset, as well as, multiple educational tours. With the admission to the Center only being $4 for adults and $3 for children it is worth the visit.
