Comprised of the Amarillo Civic Center and the Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts, the Amarillo Civic Center Complex is the primary meeting place for over 300,000 residents living in the Texas Panhandle. Conveniently located in downtown Amarillo, Texas, easy access to Interstates 27 and 40 (Historic Route 66) and over 2000 committable hotel rooms within 10 minutes make it an excellent choice for conventions, meetings, concerts, and special events.

Not a bad place to kill some time at an indoor football game or to see some minor league hockey. Hasn't been updated in a long time, but it's all we have.
