Tulsa, Oklahoma: Route 66 Village

Drive down the road from the Avery Plaza in Tulsa, and you'll come across another tribute to Route 66.

It's something of an open-air museum for the moment. There's the oil derrick, pictured here. Supposedly this is the site of the first oil strike in Tulsa history; the substance has been a part of the city's economy ever since. Tulsa calls itself "The Oil Capital of the World." There is a train nearby, complete with a steam engine.

I have seen literature that indicates there's more to come on this plaza. We'll see. The Avery Plaza also has some good-sized plans for the future, and you'd think it would be easier to make one nice attraction rather than two small ones. In the meantime, the Village might be worth a brief stop to some.
