Just to the east of Vega, and also to the west between Vega and the New Mexico border are a number of ghost towns and near-ghost towns which have Route 66 remnants.

  • Midpoint Cafe, +1 806 538 6379. This cafe sits at the midpoint of historic Route 66, with 1,139 miles to either Chicago or Los Angeles. It is the oldest Route 66 café still in operation. The specialty here is ugly crust pies, old-fashioned homestyle pies which are delicious, if misshapen. There is also a souvenir shop.
  • Adrian Lions Antique Museum, on old Route 66. Tractors and other early farm equipment from the 1930s and before. Free.
  • Giles Hotel - Vintage hotel from the 1930's, now in disrepair.
  • Antique Ranch, 300 Historic Route 66, +1 806 538 9944. A garage during Route 66's heyday, now it is a restaurant full of antiques and memorabilia serving good barbecue.
  • Bent Door Trading Post - A once popular souvenir shop, long closed. The building has a unique angular design.
