This mile-long stretch of road originally belonging to Route 66, now features shops, clubs and restaurants. Favorites include the Nat Ballroom, currently an antiques store, but a former stop for the Big Bands that passed through Amarillo, and the Golden Light Café, where the best hamburgers in town have been served for more than 50 years.

A several blocks long collection of Route 66 memorabilia, restaurants and antique stores. On a nice warm day, you will have a nice walking shopping tour. Golden Lite Cafe is in same location since its opening in 1946.

Cool vibe and mostly antique shops and stores that have just about everything for sale. You never know what you're going to find! Must see on Route 66!

This was the only place that fell short of expectation on a recent Texas road trip. The area was just a road with a lot of boarded up units, a selection of "antique" (junk) shops and shops selling items for tourists such as t shirts....More

The last time we visited was in 2001, during the 75th Anniversary, and Rolling Thunder was coming thru.

A great drive from Los Angeles eastwards on Rt 66 through to the National Parks area - we have also driven from Chicago west so have done the whole of Rt 66 - 2 Great Roadtrips

Really disappointed with our visit on a Sunday afternoon. The few "antique" shops that were open were just selling junk, though the idea of small booths within the main shop is good. The few bars that we saw looked very uninviting.

We came in at night and traveled the route and then came back in the daylight to get a better look. It would be great if there was more variety but hey, it's part of Route 66 that still lives on. Let's celebrate that!! Thank...More

Arrived late Sunday morning, nothing open other than a few bars, it was worth the walk of the road just to take a few photos. The highlight of the morning was the motor Bikes riding round,

Worth the visit yes but most of the shops in the Historic District on 6th are closed in the evening.
