It was golf extraordinaire Walter Hagen who said, “You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” The Wagon Wheel Motel of Route 66 in Cuba, MO., is one of those “flowers” that you won’t want to miss. Built in 1935, the Wagon Wheel Motel, at 901 E. Washington St, Cuba, MO, is the oldest continuously operated motel on Route 66, and is now operated by Connie Echols. If you don’t have time to spend the night in one of the simple, yet updated rooms, be sure to visit Connie’s Shoppe, where you will find all things Route 66…..books, t-shirts, jewelry, art, music and Route 66 soda! In addition to all the great merchandise, you will be in awe of the restored office, with original flooring, cathedral ceiling and a magnificent fireplace.
