This was one of the places on the must see list, but it was a bit of a disappointment. Yes, there is a story with it, but when it comes down to it, just a number of rusting cars stuck nose down in the ground and covered in graffiti. Ok for a quick diversion and spending 10 minutes there, but... More

Understand this is not a ranch. These are several old cadillacs buried nose first in the ground. They often get spay painted so they change from time to time. Worth a drive by and perhaps a quick stop. Certainly not worth a special trip to see these. Part of the charm of visiting Amarillo.

I have wanted to go to Cadillac Ranch for years. It is classic public art and as such, the public can contribute to it, on site. Just pick up a discarded can of paint that is lying nearby and add your two cents worth. Probably won't last long, but the fun is in the creation! I really enjoy Classic Americana... More

Just off the south side of I-40 on the west side of Amarillo is the Cadillac Ranch. A bunch of old Cadillac's, nose down in the ground, completely covered with years of graffiti spray paint. How cool is that! I know it's kitschy, but worth a stop for a few minutes to leave your mark and get a colorful photo... More

A great place to stop on I40! I had read about this place for years, as well as listened to my husband talk about it! So excited to see it for myself. We of course brought our own spray paint and had a blast painting on the cars! I noticed other people have complained alot about the spray paint cans... More

After our trip to Taos, NM and heading back to Dallas, Tx, we stopped in Amarillo to stay at a friends place. We decided to hit up Cadillac Ranch since we had never been. It was a few days after Thanksgiving, a work day, and it was cold. I say this because NO ONE was there and it was great!... More

While driving across the country I was SO excited to stop at Cadillac Ranch while passing through Amarillo! The location is literally right off of the highway and park along the quiet road. I couldn't believe how many people were still visiting the site at 6 o'clock at night! I would say this is a "one time" type of attraction... More

If you pass it on I-40, it's worth a stop, but I wouldn't go too far out of my way. We visited for the first time 4 years ago and then again this summer. We were there the morning of July 5 and it was clear from the mounds of litter that much celebration had occurred the night before. People... More

The cadillac ranch is a fun stop on Route 66! We didn't know you could actually spray paint these bad boys so never brought any paint with us! Lucky for us a few kind people shared and we got to have done fun while leaving out Irish Mark in this landmark!

We stopped our first time by many years ago, and drive by annually on our way to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. Not much has changed in about 20 years, and what is most amazing is the number of people stopping here. If you happen to blink going down I-40, or fascinated by all the wind generators, you might not see... More
