Explore the top-notch museums along the Route including Chandler's Route 66 Interpretive Center, the Oklahoma Route 66 Museum in Clinton and the National Route 66 Museum in Elk City.  Also, don't miss the Ribbon Road near Miami.  To save money as portions of Route 66 were paved, the concrete was poured just 9-ft wide, creating the Ribbon Road.  This original section of Route 66 is located south of Miami at the junction of E 140th Rd and S 555 Rd.
