“Time travel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The city has a collection of Route 66 memorabilia murals dispalyed to show the history of the road.
Professionally displayed throughout the city, it adds a touch of grandeur to a former time and a current locale.

“Murals Capture Old Tucumcari”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Don't miss a drive down historic Route 66 to view the great old buildings and the clever murals on motels, restaurants, and classic gasoline stations.

“A nice surprise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

On a road trip west from NY to CA, my daughter and I had a delightful stay in Tucumcari. The person at the desk in our cute retro-style hotel share a map with the locations of some of the mutrals by Sharon and Doug Quarles. We spotted the first at the Lizard Lounge, where my daughter suddenly exclaimed that some of the people she thought she saw occupying booths across the room were very realistic wall-art! The following day we only had time to view a few more, but this added to the charm of this wonderful revitalized strip of Old Route 66.

“Really Neat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

There are murals on the sides of buildings along Route 66. We had a great time driving around to look at them and see which ones we could find. It can take a few minutes or as long as you want. We were there for probably about an hour. In better weather, you could probably make it a walking tour. Lots of great photo ops. Best part is that it's completely free. You also get to see old motels that aren't open but the store fronts are still there. There are also a lot of old cars and one place has several old trucks, signs, and gas pumps. Lots of nostalgia. The chamber of commerce has a map with the mural locations on it.
