Be on the lookout, historical town murals, Route 66 Murals, and Tucumcari murals. Sides of Motels, Stores, Vintage Gas Stations and More. Enjoy

So many to see! Wish we had time to search for all! We had a mural map and were able to find many. Some were so large you had to take 2 photos to get it all in!

The murals are nicely done and reflect on the generations that have travelled Rte. 66. We toured up and down main street. So sad to see so many businesses closed up in a town. We love the murals the people we met and the town...More

While we drove the 6 mike section on Route 66 in Tucumcari we really enjoyed seeing the murals that have been painted in the town for all to see each day. Very cool for the tourists!

We loved the murals, it really 'beautifies' this little town and it's fun tracking all of them down. They are also incredibly well done!

We stopped in Tucumcari on our way home from AZ because a friend said this was a cool little town. Everything was either closed or boarded up. We did stop to see some of the murals which had been painted on the sides of buildings....More

The murals are a great and unique addition to an otherwise small town. I recommend visiting them whenever I have a guest.

We were unable to find all the murals that were on the map that we got, and decided some must have been painted over, but we enjoyed driving around seeking out the various murals. We were in Tucumcari for a weekend so we had time...More

I loved taking photos of the murals- there were so many that I couldn't even get to all of them! Plenty in walking distance from our Hotel the Blue Swallow and also quite a lot in the old downtown area.

We had fun seeing some of the murals on our lunch stop at Tucumcari. We took some photos of some of them. The Magnolia "former filling station" was probably our favorite.

I also lived in Tucumcari and so did my mother's family. Many are buried in Tucumcari Memorial Park. I loved the city and think the murals are not even close to what would be termed graffiti.
