New attraction opens on Route 66

TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa leaders are hoping a new welcome center along Route 66 will help build tourism.

The Route 66 Village held a ribbon-cutting ceremony today to officially open its doors. The building is modeled after a historic Phillips 66 cottage-style gas station.

The Improve Our Tulsa package paid for the project.

Mayor G.T. Bynum said the welcome center is one of several projects along the Mother Road that will make a Tulsa a major destination for tourists.

There’s a new attraction along Route 66! The “village depot” is a welcome center for Mother Road visitors. I loved this map showing the road in its entirety. Have you driven the historic highway?
