      The Blue Whale in Catoosa may be one of the most famous landmarks along the well-preserved section of Route 66 that runs through Oklahoma but it's actually a relatively recent addition. It was built in 1972 by one Hugh S. Davis to give his family somewhere to play in the their favourite pond. Over the years thousands of families stopped by to splay into the water, jump off his tail, climb up into his head or just picnic on the brightly painted tables by the pond.

      If you go:
      The pond is no longer open for swimming but you can still explore the whale, and the picnic tables are still there. Plus, it's obviously an unmissable photo opportunity.
