It's hard enough to figure out something to do in Amarillo when the weather is nice.

Luckily, we hardly ever have rainy days. But when we do, most people are stuck inside with no options for fun.

While you can definitely find things to do at home, like cleaning (fun!), there are some things in Amarillo that offer protection from the rain.

Here are 5 rainy day activities in Amarillo.

    The warm, dry movie theater is a great place to spend a rainy day. Amarillo's Hollywood 16 and United Artists show the latest movies, while the Westgate Mall theater has the shows you might have missed.
