Oklahoma Route 66 Passport program adds three new stops

The Oklahoma Route 66 Passport, run by the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department, recently announced it has added three new stops for the program.

The new stops in the updated passport include:

  • Cherokee Nation Anna Mitchell Cultural & Welcome Center in Vinita
  • Circle Cinema in Tulsa
  • Elk City Chamber of Commerce in Elk City

The passport is divided into three sections — Eastern, Central and Western. Stops include local restaurants, shops, museums and parks.

Upon completion of each section of the passport, participants can pick up a piece of a Route 66 magnet at one of the nine Oklahoma Tourism Information Centers. Once all three sections are completed, participants receive a collectible coin commemorating Route 66.

Since the passport was launched in 2020, hundreds of visitors from across the United States and other countries such as Poland and French Polynesia have completed the passport.

“Oklahoma is home to over 400 miles of Route 66, making it the nation’s longest driveable stretch of the iconic highway,” stated Shelley Zumwalt, Secretary of Tourism, Wildlife & Heritage, in a news release. “The Route 66 Passport gives visitors an interactive roadmap to historic businesses, shops and cultural landmarks in local communities along the Mother Road. It also plays a key role in ensuring our state makes a lasting impression on national and international travelers, especially as we approach the Route 66 centennial in 2026.”
