Any must see's between Amarillo TX and Virginia?

We are traveling East heading back to Vermont from New Mexico on I40. We plan to stop at Nashville, TN and Marion, VA. Are there any "must see's" along the way?

Did that last June and there was nothing to see in Amarillo, but it could have been the sand in my eyes.
Lower nineties today in Burlington, but back to the 80s later in the week.

In Marion, VA, there is Hungry Mother State Park and Mt Rogers National Recreation Area.

Amarillo has the Sizemore RV Museum and then there is the free steak at the Big Texan.

Been to the Big Texan on the way west, after a gastric bypass there is no way that a 72 oz steak has any interest foe me.
Think we will push on to Oklahoma City today, we are just outside of Shamrock, TX now.
Thanks for the replies.

Just a word on the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, been buy there many times, but the last time was in May and the "Paint Can Artists" have completely destroyed it, so I'll never waste my time again. We also feel extremely sorry for those who farm the nearby land as that is where hundreds upon hundreds of empty paint cans have littered the landscape.

Not trying to put a damper on this old land mark, but in MHO it is not worth the effort anymore.

We stated in Amarillo one night on our way to Ca. We also ate at the Big Texan and they told us a couple days before we got there a young lady of about 110 lbs. ate two of those 72oz steaks and all the fixins. First one was about 5 minutes, second one in about 8 minutes, both in under 15 minutes. I guess she was either hungry or broke or maybe both. Noel

The Palo Duro canyon just south of Amarillo is quite spectacular. It is smaller than the Grand Canyon, of course, but you can drive down into the canyon, camp if you want, and the scenery is quite beautiful. I haven't been there in my RV yet, but it's on my bucket list.
