Historic Route 66 in Oklahoma

With about 430 miles the Sooner State has the longest stretch of Route 66. Of course there are more than a few "bypass" alignments to explore and that can add a lot of miles.
xMiami: Sidewalk Highway
Between Miami & Afton
The Sidewalk Highway / Ribbon Road was constructed in 1922 and served as Route 66 from 1926 to 1937. The Marker is at S 140 Rd and Hwy 69.

12 Southwest 1st St.
If you like old roads like Route 66 and old cars like Packards and the people who like them this is the place for you!

Route 66 Afton
Call me crazy, but this is one of my favorite motel ruins on this grand old road. It's on the west side of Afton.

The Blue Whale in Catoosa stands as an icon on Route 66, grab a camera and snap a few photos of this wonderfully light hearted attraction.

2nd St and Elgin Ave
Truely distinctive gas stations are few and far between, even on Route 66, but this is one you really need to see!

If you're looking for a super sized neon sign in Tulsa, this is it! It sits on the 1933 alignment of Route 66.

The Round Barn has stood here for well over 100 years, along the way it became a landmark on Route 66 and is still attracting visitors today.

This motor court, gas station and cafe complex on the 1931- 47 Route 66 Beltline in Britton has been under renovation for a few years, it's closed, but well worth a photo stop.
