Route 66 in Oklahoma is the gateway to the west. It is ghost towns, the big city, neon, artists, celebrities and a one of a kind museum, or two 

The largest firearms museum in the world. A cafe owned by the same family since 1927. A world famous artist that welecomes each visitor as though they were old friends. Will Rogers, Sheb Wooley and Roger Miller. Roadhouses and bridges. The big city and bright lights. 

This is Route 66 in Oklahoma.
