The Whale was in good shape and the gift shop was open when we stopped by in March. It is funny how things change -- my daughter asked where the safety rails were. I said that when this was new, people just figured you weren't stupid enough to fall off, but you could jump!

No more swimming, but the lady in the gift shop was very nice and had great information about the location along with postcards and key chains for sale. Super kitschy free stop!

The Blue Whale has a great little souvenir shop with great history. This place was an amazing stop for the kids.

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.

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.
