As you exit I-40 it's right there. Only takes a few minutes to get a photo and well worth it for any Rte 66 stop.

You have to see this in Britten, Texas. Right on Route 66. It is really amazing and worth the stop. We stopped on our way to Amarillo.

It's an oddity that puts it on the map as an offbeat attraction. And it only takes a minute or two to get a photo. Check!

My friend had told me about this and as we were driving through the area (at night), he pointed it out. Quite interesting!

On the way to Amarillo and Estes Park, I took a slight detour to the feeder road to see this monument to eccentricity. That is all there is now. The restaurant that it advertised is long gone. It was worth the small amount of time...More

When I first started out as an owner operator I learned about this great truck stop. At 1:00am I think, would get $.20 off the pump price for diesel. Buy over 100 gallon and get free breakfast and a shower ticket. Saved me lots of...More

OK - Why is this water tower leaning - did an earthquake cause it? Did weather cause it? No, it was intentionally built that way. Its a 2 minute stop to take a photo.
