VW Slug Bug Ranch, Conway, Texas

Not too far from it's more famous counterpart lies the VW Slug Bug Ranch, and in the words of Ken Fisher who made this recommendation, it's "like the Cadillac Ranch only with VW Beetles"!

Five Volkswagen Beetles lay nose-down in the ground and, as with the Cadillac Ranch, visitors are encouraged to spray paint the cars in order to leave their mark. If you feel like a good deed, perhaps collect an empty can or two and dispose of them at your next stop - some people tend to leave them laying about.

Whether it's an homage or a riposte, this is another example of the many off-beat sights to be found along Route 66 and worthy of a stop to stretch your legs and take a few photos. If you're a fan of geocaching it's also worth noting that there just may be something hidden in this area too!

It's less well known than it's older brother, Cadillac Ranch, and so expect the place to be quiet while you potter around trying to get your "arty" shots!

Situated just off the frontage road it's generally easy to find a space to park your car nearby.

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
