Route 66: Miami OK

Southwest of Joplin MO on the Mother Road is Miami OK, once a town with ideas of grandeur and promise as well as the pocket book to back those ideas owing to the rich lead and zinc mines of the region. Today it is still a classic town featuring gorgeous architecture, a small town feel, and richly dotted with remnants of former Route 66. Worthwhile stops include the Coleman Theatre with its stunning colonial mission meets deco architecture, Waylan’s KuKu Burger (the last survivor of an ill-fated 1950’s chain, no doubt still around for its local charm and yummy eats), and the Route 66 Vintage Iron Motorcycle Museum, which was not as impressive as the Seaba Motorcycle Museum, but still had a few items of interest in their collection, especially if you are an Evel Knievel fan.
