OK...Tourist Traps exist everywhere...but, the Blue Whale may be the best of the best! It is funny...it is quirky...it is funny and fun! The Blue Whale was built as a "Tourist Attraction" along the Mother Road...Route 66...which tied Chicago to LA...just to the East of Tulsa, Ok many years ago.. It is nothing...other than "fun...and frivolity" at its best, Once... 更多
I am sure this must have been a favorite spot for families to stop on the journey down Rt 66. A "swimming hole" with a twist for the kids. Picnic areas for the family, shade trees. I would have loved stopping here when I was a kid. If you are a Rt 66 buff, you should stop here.
This does not look very exciting but is a must stop photo on 66. We did not realise the history until we got to Tulsa and a receptionist said her grand mother grew up near the Blue Whale which was either a wedding or anniversary gift from a husband to his wife. Kids used to swim in the pool. Then... 更多
What is this? A slide? A fishing pond? Something wacky? Yes, yes and yes. However don't swim in that. I think it qualifies as "Folk Art". Whatever it is, it's fun. Good place to picnic and fish with the kids. I'd post a picture but I think it might be self explanatory. Big Blue Whale.

In the 1970's a husband built the whale for his wife, who collected whales. It was his anniversary gift to her. It was... 更多
Some of my family live near here and as a kid we always passed it on the way to their home. My parents never stopped when I was young but I did stop recently with my own kids! It is such a fun roadside attraction. Fun photo opportunity!!! It's one of those crazy things that you can say you did... 更多
I've wanted to see this whale most of my life and I finally got there! I seriously have no idea why I love this thing, but I do. It's just crazy simple happiness that makes you smile. Just do it!!!
