Getting your kicks on Route 66 is easy in Oklahoma, home to more drivable miles of the “Mother Road” than any other state. With so many distinct roadside landmarks, cruising along the Sooner State’s almost 400 miles of Route 66 promises fun for everyone in your group.
Perhaps the Old Town Museum Complex in Elk City is the perfect place to start. Here visitors can travel back in time along the iconic highway from Chicago to California while at the National Route 66 Museum. Recordings of personal experiences play throughout the museum to highlight what life was like along the historic route. The Old Town Museum Complex, also home to the Farm and Ranch Museum, National Transportation Museum and several others, features a popular photo op entrance with a large Route 66 sign and a giant kachina doll made of old oil field materials.
