Known as Gateway to the Panhandle (located in the southern edge of the Texas Panhandle) and Crossroads of Hospitality (crossroads of U.S. 287 and U.S. 83). The city has become known as a hunters' haven. Many hunters return each year to hunt deer, quail, dove and hogs. Local lakes are popular for bass fishing.
Fair Park has a historical marker for the Goodnight Trail, an extension of the famed Goodnight-Loving Trail over which herds of cattle trekked to market.
A Veterans Memorial on the courthouse lawn lists Childress County veterans who served during 20th-century. The city still has many of the brick streets that were put into place in the 1920s.
