Route 66 draws visitors from all over the world to Oklahoma. Small-town diners, big-city museums and legendary roadside attractions along the Mother Road see thousands of international travelers each year— including many from Latin America and Spanish-speaking Europe.
A new Spanish-language version of the Oklahoma Route 66 Guide will make it easier for Spanish-speaking visitors to navigate the Mother Road in Oklahoma.
“Route 66 is one of our greatest tourism assets,” said Oklahoma Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell, who is also the state’s secretary of tourism and branding. “We welcome travelers from around the United States and the world to our state to enjoy America’s most famous highway. This guide is just one of the ways we hope to encourage international travelers to visit our great state. It will give visitors Spanish-speaking visitors from inside and outside the United States a comprehensive look at what they can see and do in Oklahoma.”
Produced by the Oklahoma Tourism & Recreation Department, the guide features more than 150 Mother Road attractions. It contains information on restaurants, shops, museums, festivals and historic sites along the highway. The publication highlights legendary Oklahoma Route 66 attractions like the Round Barn in Arcadia, the Blue Whale in Catoosa and the Golden Driller in Tulsa.
Oklahoma is one of eight states that Route 66 runs through. The state has America’s longest remaining stretch of the legendary highway, with more than 400 drivable miles running across Oklahoma. Route 66 runs through the heart of the state’s two largest cities, Oklahoma City and Tulsa.
