About 30 minutes west of Amarillo, you'll come across the rural city of Vega, county seat of Oldham County. Like many small towns along Route 66, Vega features plenty of rustic buildings making for great photo-ops as you cruise through town.
Stay on Historic Route 66, as it takes you directly through Vega's downtown area, where both the Oldham County Courthouse and the Magnolia Gas Station serve as two of the city's most prized attractions.
Another eclectic place to check out while you're in this part of Vega is Dot's Mini Museum. It is mini – basically a room filled with antiques and Route 66 memorabilia - but if you want a room full of fascinating stuff this is the place.
