Just 5 minutes outside Amarillo, Texas is an interactive art installation that invites you to explore your creative, artistic side with a can of spray paint! Cadillac Ranch is a string of 10 Cadillacs with their hoods buried in the sand. Tourists stop and pick up spray cans to write their names and redecorate the cars. What you see today will be different than what travelers see tomorrow. Visiting Cadillac Ranch is a must-see stop right on the side of Interstate 40.

What to Expect at Cadillac Ranch
Cadillac Ranch is not a paid attraction with admission tickets, facilities, or a visitor center. Instead, it is simply 10 cars buried halfway in the sand with no trash cans, benches or picnic tables. You park in the pull-off area right off I-40 Frontage Road, walk through the spray-painted cattle gate and walk out to the art installation.
It is not a long walk but remember that it is not stroller or wheelchair accessbile.
The fun part of this art installation is that it is interactive. If you don’t bring your own paint can, just look around the ground and find one you can use to sign your name.
There are no trashcans out by the Cadillacs but there is a dumpster near the parking area. Think ahead and bring a small plastic bag and gloves so you can be a responsible tourist and take out your own trash when you leave.
Take your time and enjoy the different angles! This is a great place for pictures!
