Situated in the Texas Panhandle, Canyon is a small but bustling town with a rich cattle and ranching history and some excellent attractions. It's location also has perfect access to the Palo Duro Canyon State Park and is home to long running musical drama TEXAS, which is performed outdoors.
You can't come to Canyon and not see TEXAS, the outdoor musical drama running since 1965, depicting the West and the settlement of Texas all in the beautiful setting of The Pioneer Amphitheatre.
