Blue Whale of Catoosa (Catoosa, Oklahoma) 1 of 11

This giant blue whale statue is one of the most beloved sites to see along Route 66. Originally built in 1972 by Hugh Davis as an anniversary gift for his wife, the statue and the pond it sits on quickly became a popular destination for picnics and swimming. The whale fell into disrepair over the years, but was recently restored to its former glory.
