Tulsa Councilor Blake Ewing is a guy who is very interested in economic development along Route 66 in Tulsa. For this reason, he called a meeting last night of everyone he could think of who shares his interest, with the idea in mind of forming a Task Force to explore and act on ideas to boost the economy and preservation of the road. I attended, and frankly, I was amazed! I expected to be among a couple of dozen of us diehard roadies, whereas there were around 150 in attendance.
The meeting was held at the newly restored Hotel Campbell right on 11th St. For a building so plain on the outside, it's downright beautiful and elegant on the inside. Although I didn't see the individual rooms, I've seen enough pictures of them to know that they make the hotel, hands down, the best place to stay on Route 66 in Tulsa. The public rooms are just great. Consider staying there when passing through Tulsa.
