Amarillo certainly seems to be designed with families in mind.
Close to shopping, schools and outdoor opportunities, The Woodlands is a prime spot for families. The area is split into sections, including a gated community and the Luxury Villas. Two schools, and elementary and a middle, and the Woodland Park combine to make this area ideal for anyone who wants a close-knit community feel. Amarillo's La Paloma area is filled with large homes ready to hold big families. Adjacent to the La Paloma Golf Club, the area is picture-perfect, complete with lakes, waterfalls and creek beds. Homes come in all shapes and sizes, from town homes to 20,000 sq. ft. estates. Lake Tanglewood is another extremely family-friendly gated community, centered around the lake it's named for. For those that prefer land activity, The Greenways of Amarillo will satisfy with its tree-lined streets and vast trail ways.
Other neighborhoods in the area include the Eagle Tree Community, Sleepy Hollow and Windsor.
Pretty and prestigious, Amarillo's Plemons District and the Oliver Eakle neighborhood contain some of the city's nicest homes. Portions of the area have been recognized by the National Register of Historic Places.
