A Route 66 Must See: The Blue Whale of Catoosa


The city of Catoosa, Oklahoma, home of the famous Blue Whale, is located just 14 miles northeast of Tulsa. This unique Route 66 roadside attraction was designed and built by a zoologist for his grandkids. After being under construction for two years, it opened in 1972. It is still popular fifty years late with people wanting to fish or to enjoy a picnic.

What's your favorite road for seeing roadside attractions?

Although we haven't driven Route 66 from beginning to end, it's one of our favorites for the oddities found along the road. We saw the Blue Whale many years ago, but since we were nearby we decided to make an encore visit!

Do you enjoy stopping At oddities along the road?

Notable Quote

And if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it's a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end. - Pico Iyer
