What can you say? You have to stop and see this. Take the 10 minutes that's required. Maybe 10 minutes from the main highway and just off Rt 66.

This place has been on my “must visit” list since I started reading about Route 66 around 1989 and have always wanted to see it. The small park there is great, the whale is about to undergo renovation to restore it to its original beauty and condition...but it doesn’t look bad

Walk and climb aboard this Route 66 Blue Whale curiosity, but no swimming permitted. Fish “catch and release” is permitted. Enjoy the many live turtles in the water. Lots of parking. The many picnic spots could use some fresh paint. There are restrooms. Worth a stop.

I have always wanted to see the Blue Whale, today was the day and I was not disappointed! We loved it and the kids did too, spent about an hour. There are lots of turtles, restrooms, a gift shop, and a picnic area. My favorite stop on Route 66.

Cute little free stop with great picture taking opportunities if you are in the area anyway. Bathroom and gift shop on site. Nice shaded picnic tables available. Short little walking path past derelict animal enclosures in back side of ark to stretch legs.
