Fun and another great, unique aspect of the City

We didn't get a chance to see all of the murals but definitely would seek them out if we had more time.

Solid murals. Ain't nothing grand but they do the job well enough. Doesn't distract from the dire condition of the town.

Stay at The historical Blue Swallow Inn and go for a stroll around town, the old school neons and cool artwork around make Tucamacari a great stop on Route 66.

Pick up the mural guide at any one of the "local" spots and start driving around Tucumcari!! The murals are all over the town and very well done - the artists did a fantastic job!!! They are all well maintained - this is a must do when visiting and it doesn't take a lot of time. Enjoy the ride!!!

I spent a day walking the Mural Trail - get a map of this put out by the Chamber of Commerce on Route 66. I just loved it - could have stayed longer - the murals are amazing - this place is a photographers dream and I am surprised I had not heard of it before. Don't miss the Art... More

Get the map of all 31 Murals. Works of art- truest a must see. Some of the murals are local history, some Route 66. I saw all of them, but hard to navigate if you are traveling solo- although there are Murals on almost every block.
