This Route 66 post is a bit special. Yes, we're still going back to 2013 when our family road trip adventures started but it happens to follow shortly after our most recent Road Trip 2018 on which we had the opportunity to visit Catoosa, Oklahoma again. So in a way, this is also a sneak peak into that road trip.
These road side attractions provide a glimpse into the past of each location as well as a welcome stop on the way to climb out of the car, walk around, relax, and learn a bit thanks to often present info boards. For me, they later also provide a reason to fire up a search engine and find even more background information to share here and link to. Are you curious what's behind the Blue Whale? See the links below to read about the whale's role not only in one family but also the whole community.
