Eh, I have to call BS on that one. I went to a cost of living calculator and compared housing costs in Amarillo to Dallas and a few suburbs and they were all more expensive than Amarillo.

I have never lived in Amarillo, although I've been through the area lots of times. The prettiest area in that general region is in Canyon (IMO), if you don't mind living a few minutes outside Amarillo.

There are some nice places to live in Amarillo, and some outside town as well. Canyon is a real nice place to live, but if you are looking for rentals, they are few and far between. The college population has them consistently taken.

However if you have kids in school, Canyon ISD is a hot place to live, whether said living is done in Canyon or South Amarillo.

The flatness is what creates the beauty. I am originally from Illinois and I've never seen a sunset or sunrise that can compare to one in Amarillo. Our weather can go from mild to wild in a heartbeat, which also makes it interesting. The people are great. The economy is good and there are many things to do. It's all about keeping a positive perspective.
