World's Largest Garage Sale

This weekend I'm in Kentucky for the World's Largest Garage Sale with my sisters and a family friend. Here's the link to that:

We will be stopping at some attractions on our way, and I will post pictures of those places when we get home!

World's Largest Peanut

World's Largest Peanut: Durant, OK (300 W. Evergreen St)

  • Directions from Hwy 69: Take the exit for Main St/Hwy 70. Head east off of the ramp. Follow this road into town. Turn left onto 3rd Street. Go up one block, and the peanut is at the intersection of Evergreen and 3rd.
After driving all day again, we enjoyed this stop. It was close to our destination, and we were able to get out of the car and walk around a bit. Durant seems like a nice small town in southern Oklahoma. We got into town at about 7 or 7:30, and not many people were out walking in downtown near the City Hall where this peanut is located. It is a cement peanut on a pedestal for all the peanut farmers in the area. It's still a huge peanut, even if it isn't real. This was a good stop for some goofy pictures!

Former World's Largest McDonald's

Former World's Largest McDonald's: Vinita, OK

No directions needed for this stop. This McDonald's spans the Will Rogers Turnpike in Oklahoma. Supposedly, it's the last stop for food and gas for 47 miles on the turnpike. We got there at about 1:30 or 2 if I recall correctly. We went in and looked at the souvenir shop that is right there too. When we went to get our food, we went to different lines. I shouldn't have left my friend's side. As I waited in line for what seemed to be 20 minutes, he had eaten most of his sandwich. I was in a great mood after waiting THAT long for my darn chicken nuggets, so I liked to call this place the World's Slowest McDonald's.
