Chandler was settled by its own land run on September 28, 1891, and now sits at the midway point along Route 66 between Oklahoma City and Tulsa. Full of opportunities to better understand Oklahoma’s past, you can experience the Mother Road through the decades at the Route 66 Interpretative Center, learn about settler life at the Lincoln County Museum of Pioneer History and get a look at some of the bikes that used to travel on Route 66 dating back to 1908 at the nearby Seaba Station Motorcycle Museum.

Experience the great outdoors at Bell Cow Lake, a perfect place for camping and boating, or test your hiking, biking and horseback riding skills along the Bell Cow Lake Trail System. Spend some time on the rolling hills of the Chandler Golf Course or feel the nostalgia of a 1920s style cinema experience at the H&S Theatre. With great local events each summer like the annual Chandler Ice Cream Festival and Wild Hog BBQ & Chrome Fest, Chandler is a town along Route 66 you’ll want to visit again and again.
