Fastest Route From Tucson to Amarillo TX

Jump to last reply

Hello there!

I'm pretty new to road tripping, and actually am doing a cross country move in one month. I am looking for the absolute fastest route from Tucson to Amarillo, TX. I'll be traveling with a dog (tips there are appreciated too) and won't be able to do any site seeing- plus the heat will make getting out of the car brief. So I just want to power through and reach my destination as soon as possible.

Importantly, I don't want to get stuck on a one lane, 50 MPH road by choosing the shortest route though. AAA gave me a route that takes routes 70, 54 and 60, but I'm not familiar with those roads at all. I can see it skirts around Roswell and up past Clovis, NM before going into TX that way.

Is it about the same time to just go the typical route through Albuquerque or do one of the lesser known routes really make a difference?

Also, my car isn't great on gas mileage, so stretches without any stations also make me nervous.

Any advice?
