Iconic Landmarks in Oklahoma

Stop in and check out some of Oklahoma’s well-known and famous landmarks from the Panhandle down to the southeast. Hop on the iconic Route 66 for a few classics, like the Blue Whale of Catoosa. Located in northern Oklahoma, this 20-foot-tall, 80-foot-long blue whale structure created by zoologist Hugh Davis for his grandkids is a popular landmark for picnics and pit stops along the Mother Road. Over in Arcadia, visit the giant POPS Soda Bottle along the highway, which stands in front of a gas station and diner frequented by roadies. Measuring 66 feet tall and weighing over 4 tons, this iconic landmark signifies the 650 soda varieties at this Oklahoma eatery. For another stop along Route 66, Cyrus Avery Centennial Plaza in Tulsa is a popular place for photographs. With eight state flags representing all states found along Route 66, the grounds showcase the 20,000-pound bronze sculpture titled “East Meets West” which signifies the Avery family in a Model T car passing a horse-drawn carriage. Also in Tulsa, pay a visit to the Oil Driller statue at the Tulsa County Fairgrounds. At 76 feet tall, this is one of the tallest freestanding statues in the country. This golden landmark represents “The Oil Capital of the World.”
