The Mother of All Road Trips: Route 66
On to Oklahoma
Mickey Mantle's boyhood home, Commerce, Oklahoma: The house at 319 S. Quincy represents a genuine sports pilgrimage. Legend says the corrugated shed got its dents when the Mick hit pitches thrown by his dad after long days in the local mines.
Clanton's Cafe, Vinita, Oklahoma: This 1927 landmark's neon sign (left) says it all: "Eat." The chicken-fried steaks draw TV crews and magazine writers, but it's worth stopping for cream pie and coffee even if you pass through Vinita between meals.
