The Route 66 town of Claremore, Oklahoma gave the state two of its best-loved sons: Will Rogers and Lynn Riggs, scribe of Green Grow the Lilacs, the play that inspired the musical Oklahoma! Visit the Will Rogers Memorial Museum, where you can explore the life and accomplishments of this dynamic political pundit, comic and global celebrity. View his saddle collection, study the possessions that were found with him at the site of the airplane crash that killed him and his friend Wiley Post, and take a seat in the theater to enjoy short films about his incredible life. At the small Lynn Riggs Memorial, you can see the original "surrey with the fringe on top" from the movie musical version of Oklahoma!

Claremore also offers a historic downtown area full of unique shopping and dining experiences, the Will Rogers Raceway, the Cherokee Casino and the J.M. Davis Arms & Historical Museum among other interesting sites to see and things to do.
