Day 1: Our Mystery Tour in 2021 was such a success we wanted more of our friends to experience it.  Today we travel through Kansas, Oklahoma and almost through the state of Texas to Amarillo, our home for the next two nights. After we check into the hotel we are off to the Big Texan Steak Ranch for an included dinner.  Night in Amarillo.
 
2: In 1974, ten Cadillacs were partially buried nose down outside of Amarillo as a form of public art.  Cadillac Ranch is our first stop today to puzzle over this curious art form.  Next we stop at Jack Sizemore’s Vintage RV Museum.  Here we see RV’s from the 1930's through the 1970's. Step back in time, reminisce and enjoy the progression of the RV industry from its inception till now.  This afternoon we visit the American Quarter Horse Museum.  Interactive exhibits, artwork and interactive multimedia presentations tell the story of the American Quarter Horse from its early racing days in Virginia to modern ranching in the Southwest.  Next we are off to Palo Duro Canyon, the second largest canyon in the United States.  Following a guided tour of the canyon we enjoy an included chuckwagon dinner.  After dinner we have a behind the scenes look at how “Texas”, the outdoor drama is produced.  Next we attend a performance of “Texas" in the Pioneer Ampitheater.  Night in Amarillo.
 
3: A little later start this morning has us heading for the Los Cedros Ranch outside Amarillo.  Here we enjoy a breakfast/brunch as we listen to cowboy music and stories and watch the cowboys and cowgirls perform on their horses.  Later we drive to Lubbock, one of the major agricultural centers of Texas.  Our first stop is at the Buddy Holly Center which chronicles the life and music of the Lubbock native.  After checking into our hotel we are off to an included dinner at a local restaurant.
Night in Lubbock
 
4: We start the morning with a tour of Lubbock and a stop at Prairie Dog Town.  Next we have a guided tour of the American Wind Power Center which has an exhibit hall with more than 100 American-style windmills from 1868 to the present.  The center also houses 4000 feet of “G” scale train track with railcars and scenery from the early 1900s. Lunch today is at the Hand of the Cook Kitchen where we have a tortilla making class before we enjoy an included Taco Bar lunch.  At the Fibermax Center for Discovery we learn about cotton, cotton picking through the ages as well as the agricultural history of West Texas and the south plains.  Dinner tonight is included at the Triple J Chophouse followed by a performance at the Cactus Theater.  Night in Lubbock
 
5: This morning we are headed to Oklahoma City.  A mid-afternoon arrival at our hotel allows us time to freshen up before departing for our evening activities.  Dinner this evening is at Cattlemen’s Steakhouse in the Stockyards area of Oklahoma City. Following dinner we walk to the Rodeo Opry House for an evening of musical entertainment.  Night in Oklahoma City
 
6: Our first stop today is at the American Banjo Museum in Oklahoma City’s Bricktown District.  The museum honors the rich history, vibrant spirit and unlimited future of the banjo. The museum’s collection contains more than 400 instruments, recordings, film, video, printed music, instructional materials, ephemera and memorabilia associated with the banjo. The museum contains the largest collection in the world of banjos on public display.  Lunch is at Toby Keith’s I Love this Bar and Grill before we head north back to Kansas.
