We Know We Left Out Some

The first thing that comes to mind is The Big Texan. Yes, it's a major landmark. Yes, there have been all kinds of people show up to take the challenge. Do we need it one more time in a list?

I could say the same for Cadillac Ranch, because we all know it's there. The difference, in my opinion, is the cultural significance of Cadillac Ranch versus Big Texan.

Some Things Aren't There Anymore

For instance, the Roger Miller Museum. Unfortunately, it has been closed permanently.

There have been a lot of things come and go on Route 66. There are motor courts all over the Mother Road that are in a state of absolute disrepair.


I didn't include those either. They have their own big list. This list is for stuff you can drive to and see, and experience, that you might have missed the last time you got your kicks on 66.

Glenrio Gets A Special Mention

Speaking of abandoned and disrepair, I did put Glenrio in here for a couple of reasons. One, it's the last stop in Texas and the first in New Mexico. Two, there's supposedly a second lease on life coming Glenrio's way.

Look at How Amarillo's Old Route 66 Motels Looked Then & Now

The heyday of the Mother Road may be long gone, but would you believe that there's still plenty of the old motels where many a weary American family rested their heads during their interstate travels?

You won't believe some of these are still standing, much less still alive and (wait for it..) kickin'!
