Getting There & Getting Around
Canyon is located immediately south of the junction of I-27 and U.S. 87, about 16 miles south of downtown Amarillo. Once entering town, U.S. 87 becomes 23rd Street, one of Canyon's main commercial thoroughfares. Tex. 217, which runs east-west, becomes 4th Avenue in town and is accessible via I-27, exit 106; head west 2 miles to get to Canyon proper or east 10 miles to get to Palo Duro Canyon State Park.
Canyon's small size makes it impossible to get lost. The streets run north-south and begin at 1st at the west side of town. The avenues run east-west and begin numerically in the north.
