Amarillo, TX. isn't exactly known for it's incredible skyline. I mean, there isn't really much of one to look at. We've got a few tall buildings that create a "skyline", but when you compare it to other cities, there's not much to it.

Just because it has a lack of a skyline, it doesn't mean seeing the city from up high isn't fun and interesting to look at.

I got a chance to look at it from a different view from high up for the first time about a month ago. I was in the Amarillo National Bank high-rise downtown for the Children's Miracle Network broadcast we did. We were up in the top floor of the building, and our view was amazing.

You could see just how green the city truly is, and all the different elevation changes. Now, you can't just walk into that building and head up to the top floor to take a look. However, there are a few places you can go if you want to get a different view of our city.

One of the ways to check it out is to go into one of the parking garages around town and just drive up to the very top of it. You will certainly get a different view of the city, but you probably won't be able to get that "helicopter" view you're seeking as the parking structures aren't as high as some of the buildings around it.

Another place you can go to get a wide-ranging view of the city is this foot bridge that is over near McMasters. Again, probably not as high as you want to be, but you can get a nice view where you can look out for miles.

The best you can probably get is if you're a member at Amarillo Club. You can work your way up towards the top there and get one of the better views of the city from there. Someone on Reddit suggested you could just dress nice and act interested in a membership so you can get a tour of the building. If it's just that quick view you're wanting, this may not be too bad of an idea.
