We stopped off for a short time on route 66 to see this icon. It is basically a fiberglass diving platform on a small lake with a small slide on the side. Looks a bit run down but is unusual and worth a quick visit...More

This is a recommended site from EZ 66 book. It's just a very neat thing to see. It won't change your life (probably) but you'll remember it as a fun thing.

If you love Route 66 this is a must. Has a neat history. You can't miss the blue whale from the road. You can't swimming in the pond.

It is a blue whale, which is in need of repair. Definitely a plain-Jane attraction and should be fancied up a bit to make it an authentic attraction.

This is mostly a sight-seeing stop, not much "to do" here. But it only took us a few minutes off our course to get to see some mid-century Americana. One day it will probably be gone, so see it while you can. The whale was...More

A step back in time - a blue whale in a pond that used to be a great swimming hole for the locals. Today there is no swimming - just catch and release fishing. Fun stop to see and imagine what this was like in...More

I've always wanted to see this. It was a quick stop but definitely worth it. The volunteer working the gift shop gave lots of information about it. It was fun to walk in the whale and see the turtles in the pond. Lots of photo...More
