Route 66 Red Rocker

Fanning's Outpost is a great feed store, snack shop and souvenir spot! The giant rocking chair is a must-stop if you're a fan of Rt 66. People from all over the world have stopped and left stickers and decals on the base of the rocker.

The employees of the shop were friendly and love talking about the people they meet from all over the world. They sell flavored popcorn and carry old fashioned bottled sodas.

World's Largest Route 66 Rocking Chair.

World's Largest Route 66 Rocking Chair

The Largest Rocking Chair on Route 66 was fun, and just a quick jaunt off of the interstate. We arrived before the adjacent store even opened, and the owner came out and was willing to open just for us. A very nice man! We were hauling a single-axle camper behind us, and it was very easy to get in and out of this attraction. You won't regret stopping here.

World's 2nd Largest Rocking Chair: Route 66 Red Rocker

The Route 66 Outpost next to the rocking chair is closed and out of business. Fortunately the Red Rocker still stands (or sits) tall!

The store reopened under new ownership in August 2017.

Great place to stop for photos and shop. Lucky to have a train pass by while we sat on the porch.
