Shamrock, Texas is 110 miles east of Amarillo, 188 miles west of Oklahoma City, and 291 miles northwest of Dallas.


Shamrock is proud to be the first Route 66 city in Texas upon approach from the east


Shamrock is a small yet bustling regional hub with many new stores and businesses being built every year.


The city is located in the eastern portion of the Texas Panhandle centered along the crossroads of Interstate 40 (formerly U.S. Route 66) and U.S. Route 83


Compared to the rest of the country, Shamrock's cost of living is 19.7% lower than the U.S. average

Located at the intersection of I-40 (Historic Route 66) and US Highway 83, a visit to Shamrock means experiencing both the modern comforts and historic charm of an era not long forgotten.

Make Shamrock a destination on your Route 66 vacation and stop by the historic U-Drop Inn, featuring one of the area’s only Tesla Supercharger stations. (The likeness of this building was actually featured in Disney’s 2006 animated feature “Cars.”) 

Pay us a visit in March, and enjoy our annual St. Patrick’s Day Celebration, the official St. Patrick’s Day Celebration of the State of Texas. Catch the parade, have some fun at the carnival, reminisce at the classic car show, kick it up at the dance, and enjoy countless other activities for all ages and tastes.

As one of the Texas Panhandle’s top hunting destinations, we can recommend several local, experienced hunting guides to help ensure an unforgettable sporting experience.

Top your stay off with food and drink at one of our delicious restaurants, and rest your head at one of our 600+ hotel rooms.
