Road Trip on Route 66 Across Oklahoma to Amarillo
|Vintage postcard showing the location of Route 66 across Oklahoma|
As Route 66 left Joplin, Missouri, it was only a short distance to the Oklahoma border. It quickly entered Miami, and headed southwest to Tulsa and Oklahoma City.
From there, it was a straight shot west through Weatherford, Clinton and Elk City.
The Mother Road crossed the Texas state line near Shamrock, and moved on to Amarillo.
The nation's longest driveable stretch of Route 66 crosses Oklahoma, making its way past charming towns, roadside diners and quirky attractions.
