I had read somewhere on the internet that Tucumcari is fast becoming known as the “City of Murals”. So we set out like kids at an Easter Egg Hunt, searching for some ginormous works of art.
Since many are scattered on and near Route 66, locating them took very little effort!
In fact, one of my favorites graced the wall of the Blue Swallow Inn!
A fun and free detour that would prove to be a great diversion on any road trip, Tucumcari is located minutes from I-40, Exit 335 in New Mexico.
