A short drive past the Pony Bridge, also known as the Canadian River Bridge, leads to Hydro, a Great Plains community established in 1901 and named for the high-quality water wells in the area. Today, Hydro is fairly quiet, but some businesses in the downtown area still provide a good rest stop, from the bar to the vintage shop to the peanut factory and store.

Heading outside of Hydro, Route 66 parallels Interstate 40 very closely heading west. Within a mile, you'll happen across one of Hydro's most famous landmarks, Lucille's. Built in 1927, Lucille’s was originally a gas station until 1941 when it was purchased by Lucille and Carl Hamons. Be sure to stop in and grab a snack, just as Route 66 travelers did for so many years.
