Welcome to

Claremore
... an Oklahoma Tradition!

Nestled in the heart of the Cherokee Nation and northeast Oklahoma’s
Green Country, Claremore is home to two American icons, Will Rogers
and Historic Route 66.

A short drive from Tulsa, Claremore is known for world class museums,
great local eateries, and small town charm. Will Rogers once said,
“Folks make towns, not numbers”. It is the people of Claremore; their
hospitality, community pride, and dedication to our past and our future,
which make Claremore an Oklahoma tradition.

Driving through town our legends are commemorated by statues and
street signs… anyone famous from Claremore has a street named for
them. Experience all we have to offer. Relax and enjoy the wonderful
accommodations, world-class attractions and unique shopping. Try
a local favorite for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert. You won’t be
disappointed.

Claremore isn’t just a state of mind-it’s where visitors embrace legends
like Will Rogers, Patti Page, the musical Oklahoma! based on the play
“Green Grow the Lilacs” by Lynn Riggs, athlete Andy Payne, astronaut
Stuart Roosa, and many others. Experience Historic Route 66 like never
before!

Visit the Mother Road’s icons: The Blue Whale, JM Davis Arms &
Historical Museum and the world’s largest Totem Pole, just to name a
few. Enjoy Claremore’s annual festivals and events… there is always
something going on!
