Texas Panhandle
- Panhandle Plains

This is where a lot of the world gets it's idea of what Texas is really like. Tumbleweeds, pump-jacks, windmills and four open horizons.
Some might argue about how many counties actually comprise the Panhandle - but there's no argument about the friendliness of the people. The vast distances between towns makes people glad to see another human face. They might even be glad to see you.
Major Cities:
Amarillo - Amarillo Hotels
Lubbock - Lubbock Hotels
