Apparently, Amarillo is a "one hit wonder" as far as skyscrapers is concerned. 5/10.

Okay as far as skylines go, but I agree with waccamatt, only one tall building. I give it a 5/10 for the effort.

I vote 7.0

Amarillo looks very simular to Fort Wayne (Indiana)
I like it. Seems to be one of those nice "hidden" skylines you don't hear much about.

Only one real skyscraper, the rest of the city is rather flat. But it's quite impressive skyline for a city of this size. 6,5/10

I kinda like it. One big, tall building amid a good collection of midrises and lowrises, some of them historic. Nothing wrong with that at all. I wonder how healthy the city, and especially downtown Amarillo are as a whole. A city will usually get extra points from me if it's especially healthy. I'll wager a 7.

Another random city I've been through. I remember literally seeing tumbleweed roll across the highway. It was pretty funny.

As for Amarillo's skyline, it isn't too bad. There are some nice historic buildings in there. I give it a 4.5/10.

I like the large, shorter buildings, with the tall one to top it off.

8/10
