Oklahoma

Oklahoma has the longest stretch of Route 66

Every Route 66 state has its own unique sights and special contributions to the history and lore (or is that lure?) of Route 66. But only in Oklahoma do the elements of buildings, roadside attractions, people and history come together in such overwhelming abundance

The fabled "Main Street of America" crosses Oklahoma for 392-plus miles (and in fact was born here; the road's architect, Cyrus Avery, lived in Tulsa). Route 66 enthusiasts will tell you there's no better place to cruise--travelers find neon-lit diners, drive-in theaters, mom-and-pop gas stations and many of the famed Route 66 icons within Oklahoma's borders. The state also is home to the National Route 66 museum and a state Route 66 Museum.
