Pronounced My-am-uh, the city is named after the Indian tribe that settled at the juncture of the Neosho and Spring Rivers. Route 66 winds through Miami's downtown, where the Coleman Theatre, a Mother Road landmark built in 1929, was recently refurbished. Take in live entertainment, a silent movie with an on-site organist or a classic film.
Miami is home to nine Native American tribal headquarters. View artifacts from these and other American Indian cultures at the Dobson Museum, and try your hand at the tribal-owned casinos in town. Miami is centrally located within a 30 mile range of 13 casinos. The city also boasts the last original section of Route 66 which was just 9 feet wide, called the Ribbon Road. This historic section of Route 66 runs between Miami and Afton for 13 miles. The Miami City pool is the largest municipal pool in the state of Oklahoma. The pool features three huge slides and a special kiddie section.
The Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau specializes in trip planning, hotel selection, transportation coordination, site visits, media support, welcome booths, tour guides, and maps. Many additional services are available for your group by working directly with the Miami CVB.
