If you are travelling route 66 then Tucumcari is worth a visit. It's a logical stopover and I recommend the Roadrunner Lodge if you are staying overnight. The murals are fascinating and very well done. A way to reinvigorate a town which suffered a major downturn when the interstate was built. An interesting chapter in the history of the great... More

It only takes 1/2 hour to drive around town and look at all of the murals painted on the sides of the buildings. Looks like some talented folks in this area that tell the story of Route 66 during the hay days in Tucumcari.

I know you can see all the photos that other people have taken of the murals but I say it is worth seeing them in the context of the town. The local buildings are interesting.

Finding them is kind of like a scavenger hunt. We got a map then walked or drove around finding each one. The 66 Eyes was the most well hidden - right in plain sight (pun not intended).

Take a drive thru town and look at all the murals and the old buildings and all the old motels that are still open and in very good condition.

50+ amazing murals dotted around town the map tells you where to look. Nostalgia +++ take the car though it's not a doable walk as they are spread around the town

It was worth the "hunt" to see the murals. Most are themed with Route 66 Road Tripping! We stayed at the Blue Swan Motel, they had a map of the locations of each mural.

The murals were great, quaint pieces of artwork - finding them was a bit more challenging. A walking tour might have been better, if there is one.

Great fun acitvity to do for all ages. During our stay at the Blue Swallow motel, we were advised by the owners to go out and look for the authentic murals that are spreaded through town with a map they gave us. It was fun trying to find them and some of them are really amazing.
