Living in Amarillo

Amarillo is known as “The Yellow Rose of Texas” due to the little yellow wild-flowers that once grew along the banks of the Amarillo Lake and Creek; Amarillo meaning yellow in Spanish. For expatriates living in Amarillo who are interested in flora and fauna, one of the most beautiful places to enjoy wildlife and the local vegetation is The Wildcat Bluff Nature Center, which offers 600 acres of native grasslands, woven with nature trails. Other attractions for expats to get to know include the Palo Duro Canyon State Park, the USA's second largest canyon system after the Grand Canyon; the Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts which houses the Amarillo Opera, Amarillo Symphony and Lone Star Ballet; and the Texas Panhandle War Memorial. With Amarillo being in Texas, there is a rich cowboy culture with rodeos, ranches and steak dinner challenges; something every expat living in Amarillo should experience. Those looking to learn more about Amarillo’s cowboy history can visit the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum.

Moving to Amarillo

Expats in Amarillo can find a wealth of information and useful tools at InterNations. Expatriates can use InterNations to get in touch with other international expats living in Amarillo, and to network, socialize and source information on everything from banking to apartments, visas to storage. Relocation to a new city can be a challenge, so to make things easier, InterNations publishes an informative online journal to help expatriates to settle in. This Expat Magazine is a collection of articles covering matters such as insurance, finance, culture shock and living abroad.

Working in Amarillo

As you might imagine, being in Texas, one of Amarillo’s most predominant industries is meat processing and packing, with Tyson Foods being one of the largest employers in the region. It is said that a quarter of the United States of America’s beef supply is processed in Amarillo. In the past, Amarillo was known as the Helium Capital of the World, being home to one of the country’s most productive helium fields, but in more recent years, petroleum extraction has become more prevalent. Amarillo also has 14 million acres of agricultural land, with the primary crops being corn, cotton and wheat, meaning that farming plays a big role as well. Expats moving to Amarillo for work can use InterNations to ask fellow expatriates in Amarillo for information on opportunities, salaries and housing and to meet other global minds living in the area.
