Visitor Tips and News About Blue Whale
We stopped on a Wednesday afternoon and there were three food trucks operating and the gift shop was open. Tacos and tamales were great -- we picnicked by the whale.[Andrea, 06/25/2015]
The Blue Whale is a must-see for any Route 66 buff. I can't imagine that anyone ever swam in the pond, but I guess times were different. There are some nice picnic tables and some kids were fishing when we stopped by in August.[April N, 12/05/2014]
Definitely worth it. The tamale cart/house next to the Blue Whale is delicious.[Crystal Morris, 11/23/2014]
The Blue Whale
Our GPS couldn't find the posted address, but the Whale is there and worth the trip. If you're lucky the curator (and son of the builder), Blaine Davis, will be there to share the story of his parents, show you around the park behind the locked gates, and take your picture while you're inside the whale. The park is also a nice shady spot for a picnic.[Cate S., 08/20/2013]
