Discover Canadian

Hidden among the rolling hills of the Texas High Plains is a beautiful treasure where visitors are welcomed by some of the most unique shopping, dining, and lodging in Texas. The Canadian River cuts through the landscape of the blue hills to bring life to the sandy loam of the pretty little Panhandle town of Canadian. This area has been occupied for centuries and these generations have lived through the tribulations of drought, iniquity, and war to enjoy the spoils of the booming oil and gas industry and flourishing cattle ranching business that have made Canadian the gem of the Panhandle it is today.
