Description: This offbeat roadside attraction features 10 graffiti-covered Cadillacs...
This offbeat roadside attraction features 10 graffiti-covered Cadillacs standing upright in a row, buried nose-first in the ground. The sculpture is the brainchild of Amarillo millionaire Stanley Marsh III, who chose classics dating from 1948 to 1963, the "Golden Age" of the American automobile.

I read some horrible reviews on here and can't help think Stanley Marsh III is laughing from his grave as folks are still visiting the buried Cadillacs after all these years and have no clue what they're looking at. The Cadillac Ranch is NOT Disney Land, it's not a water park, there's no refreshments served or convenient picnic tables. If... More

I've driven past this attraction many, many times without slowing on the interstate. No matter what the weather, there is always at least one car stopped, often several. The Texas panhandle stretch of I-40 is not the liveliest place on earth, but the popularity of this bunch of half-buried cars is beyond my comprehension. Maybe it's the same thing that... More

Wow! a half dozen OLD Cadillac cars buried face down in a dirt field. Oh Joy! I must admit, it's a novelty and maybe a thrill for some people, but over the years the tourist/locals have trashed the place, and I would suggest having your 'shots' before entering, risk of infection or other things from cuts on the rusty metal....

I am from Texas. This has always been advertised as one of the places you have to visit. The first time we went was very cold. We went again in February. It was warm that day. We were not impressed the first time or the second time. Waste of time, but you may want to go, just to say you... More

I was in the Amarillo area and found some VW's stuck in the ground. I then decided to visit Cadillac Ranch. The cars are pretty destroyed, and the paint is ratty looking. Interesting but sort of funky. Visit the VW's instead. I40 and Route 207 - east of Amarillo.

Super fun spot and well worth seeing. Beware that it can be super muddy in the winter months and we were pleased that we had spare shoes!!

We were driving through Texas coming back from a trip. We have a friend of ours that we call mustard man who really likes and wants to go to the Cadillac ranch so we decided we would stop and put his name on it in yellow. Other than the oddity of the stop we can say we have been there... More

Amarillo is home of the Cadillac Ranch and, therefore, a huge attraction on the path of the Mother Road, Historic Route 66. An art group called The Ant Farm created this public art installation in 1974, which is free to see. A number of Cadillacs have their front ends buried in the dirt with their back ends sticking up out... More

I visited this attraction when I came across the country originally from Maine to Phoenix in May 2005, essentially following the old Route 66 Corridor. I was just looking up attractions to check out on the way, and I heard of the Cadillac Ranch. I was under no illusion that it was a real ranch or anything, but I had... More

You've seen it on cards, you've heard it mentioned and once you get here you'll think: Really? It's just a few old cars in the dirt amidst a farmers field. Some may think it's exciting but really enjoy the trip cause the destination is anti-climactic.
