  • Daytrip Northeast from Shawnee

    A visit to Shawnee is more than our art, historic sites, and Native American culture. It’s daytrips to see more of Oklahoma. Plan to spend an extra day or two. Within an hour of Shawnee, here’s our favorite historic and off-beat sites to see northeast of the Redbud City. Seaba Station Motorcycle Museum, Warwick. Seaba Filling Station is listed on the National Register of Historic Places having been built in 1921. It is now filled with more than 65 vintage motorcycles from 1908 to present – including a bike like Captain America rode! One visitor has said, “this place really captures the essence of what it's about to travel on Route 66. A quick stop at roadside museum or attraction to gain a little knowledge and get a good photo op is at the heart of the Route 66 travel experience.” Website 405-258-9141 Route 66 Interpretive Center, Chandler. It’s not your typical museum. It’s “more than a display of chrome and neon. Route 66’s tale is told through an interesting array of interactive videos portraying the huge part Oklahoma has played in forming the sights and sounds along the “Mother Road.” Website 405-258-1300 Mural, Chandler. Depicting Chandler’s history, this mural is located On the south side of the downtown area, just south of 13th street on Route 66 1301 Manvel Ave Lincoln County Museum of Pioneer History, Chandler. See murals, Native American artifacts, the memorabilia from legendary Lincoln County U.S. Marshal William (Bill) Tilghman, a member of the famous Oklahoma “Three Guardsmen,” and the Outhouse. (Believe us!) Website (405) 258-2425 Brick Paved Broadway Street, Davenport. Located on the famous Route 66 "Curve" midway between Okla. City and Tulsa, Davenport is a bustling little town where travelers can still drive on one of the few strips of original Portland cement that was laid for the Mother Road highway. It’s on the National Register of Historic Places. Read the historic marker in front of the post office and see the two large murals on downtown buildings. Ozark Trail Obelisk, Davenport. The Ozark Trail obelisk in Stroud is one of only two remaining Oklahoma monuments of the historic motor trail that predates Route 66. The Ozark Trail was established in 1913 and routes were originally marked with 21 green and white obelisks from Missouri to New Mexico and Texas. Nationally, only seven obelisks remain. This 21-foot-tall structure in Stroud was originally erected along Main Street, but was later relocated to its current location closer to Davenport. Website Sparks Vinyard and Winery, Sparks. Featured on Discover Oklahoma and voted one of the best wineries in Oklahoma by the OKC Gazette, the winery is perfect for this discovery journey, wine trailing, fact-finding, and thirst quenching. Website 918-866-2529 UFO, Shoe Tree and Metal Dinosaur, Stroud. Tucked away on the sides of old Route 66 in Stroud are is a collection of metalwork. There’s a couple of skeletal cows, a cactus, and a child-sized train called the Lincoln County Express. It was the work of Paul Hicks, a pipeline welder who started creating this collection in the 1970s. Yard artist Craig McGuire created a UFO. Tip: there is a sign that says "UFO" right before the gravel driveway. And the Shoe Tree? It’s a tree with shoes hanging from it. (We don’t know either.) Bohemian Hall, Prague. The Bohemian Hall, built in 1917 and listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings, was the center of the rich culture of the Czechoslovakian gatherings whether it be for dancing, song, performances, or simply the warmth and friendship of sharing their familiar heritage. After a fun day of sight-seeing and exploring, grab a bite, then settle into your hotel room in Shawnee and rest up for your next day of fun or travels home.
