Join us as we drive along famous Route 66 on Saturday June 25, 2022, to some of the great sights that made Route 66 the Mother Road of America.

We will depart Jackie Cooper Mercedes Benz promptly at 8:30am and drive to Vinita to meet  members of the Ozark section who will participate in this drive.  Sections will meet at the Vinita Walmart parking lot at 10:00am.

Plans are to stop at the following landmarks:

  • Ed Galloways Totem Pole Park   (Chelsea OK)
  • Catoosa Blue Whale                     (Catoosa OK)
  • Meadow Gold Neon sign              (Tulsa OK)
  • Buck Atoms Cosmic Curios           (Tulsa OK)
  • Boston Avenue United Methodist Church (Tulsa OK)
  • Route 66 Park           (West Tulsa OK)

Other  Route 66 landmarks we will see but not stop (except for pictures) include:

  • Route 66 fire station
  • Route 66 Rising sculpture
  • Desert Hills motel
  • Tally’s Route 66 Diner
  • Mother Road Market
  • Greenwood Avenue (Black Wall Street)
  • Cains Ballroom    Honkytonk
  • Cyrus Avery Park
  • Cyrus Avery plaza    Neon sign park

 Lunch will be served at the famous White River Fish Market restaurant in Tulsa. Drivers  will need a navigator to follow directions once we get into the city of Tulsa.  (directions, maps, and tour highlights will be distributed to each car).

For those who did not sign up at our May or June Gathering, please email  me at [email protected] or call me at 918 527 8121 to get on the list.

We are very fortunate to have this historic landmark within our state.  Most of the drive is on the original Route 66 2-lane highway and driven at speeds that will allow you to take in the neon signs, art murals, and art deco architecture.

Let us know if you wish to participate.

Hope to see you there.
