The Cadillac ranch with 10 Cadillacs set nose first into the ground is a classic icon and probably the best known single item on Route 66. Well you should not miss this little homage in the form of VW Beetles in Conway. This is great if travelling westbound, because you see it first...if you are travelling east and have seen... More

Good little stop off if you're in the area. Good photo opportunity, bring a decent felt top pen or a spray can, nice little alternative to Cadillacs

This is a great stop! We had to freeze our graffiti in time, if only until the next travelers cover it. Where can you spray paint on things legally?

This is less frequented and I like that. It also has a couple other old cars free to paint up. You can park right next to it. The Cadillac Ranch you do walk maybe 1/4 mile.

You can park right next to the Cadillac Ranch. Other than that, it's a poor man's version of the original. Still worth a visit though.

Calling all graffiti artists . . . here's yet another place that you can paint away without fear of recrimination. We didn't get out and paint these ones ~ the wind was blowing too hard in this sandy area and fighting the dirt didn't seem like much fun. Had it been a less windy day, I'm sure my spray-paint fiend... More

From the Cadillac Ranch to the Slug Bug Ranch. Same idea just on a smaller canvas. Fun and free, worth a stop.

If you go to the Cadillac Ranch, you must go the extra 30 miles down the road to Conway to the Slug Bug Ranch. Just a little bit of whimsey to make you smile. And bring your spray paint, it may not be a blank canvas, but it’s ready and waiting for another coat of paint. A definite photo-op.
