A well done sculpture at the Convention center
Sep 2019
This is really a photo op of an iconic sculpture of a 60s era tail fin. It is located in front of the Convention Center at the west end of town on old route 66. Easy to visit since the center's parking lot is right there.

Trip Advisor photo misleading for this monunent
Nov 2019 • Couples
We drove by looking for the deserted motel and old graffiti-covered pickup as shown in TA for this attraction. Stopped in the Route 66 Museum and was directed to the concrete base with the chrome-looking 66 with the tail fin from a 60s era car in their parking lot. I was able to climb up the base for a photo op. Sad to see so many deserted reminders of a once exciting era in faded and run down buildings.

Statue on the road
Oct 2019
Did a quick drive by. The statue is nice but the area around it makes you feel sad for the loss of an era.

A feel of the 60's
Aug 2019
I love this particular Route 66 Monument, it has a really old fell of the 60's era to me. It's right by the museum so it's easy to spot. Definitely one of my favourites.

This was our 2nd time here and one were very disappointed to see how run down it had become. We saw a lot of burned out, overgrown gas stations, motels and cafes. We saw maybe 2 vintage cars and most of the signs need repainting. Very said.

Cool Monument
May 2019
Sadly, we did not take a picture of this cool monument as the family was starving and wanting to eat. It is on the west end of town and is a cool tribute to Route 66.

The boys pointed this out to us as we drove by. After stopping at the 66 museum we had to go back by the monument for pictures. Stop by and see both!!

NOT A MONUMENT JUST A PHOTO OP.
Jun 2019 • Couples
Located on the west end of town on old Route 66 they have put up a visual commerating Route 66 out front of the convention center and supposedly a Route 66 museum that was empty when we visited. This is a good photo OP if you are already in Tucumcari. You can also go into the convention center to use the restrooms.

Nice pit stop on 66 with the kids, doesn’t require a lot of time and the area is quiet and easily accessible. Nice area for photo op
