World’s Largest Route 66 Rocking Chair

5957 State Hwy ZZ, Cuba, MO 65453, USA

Historic Route 66 snakes through the state of Missouri, offering road trippers an array of classic motels, neon signs, and kitschy attractions. Case in point: the World’s Largest Route 66 Rocking Chair, which resides in the small town of Fanning. Built by Danny Sanazaro on April Fool’s Day 2008—in a successful attempt to trump a rocking chair he saw in Indiana—the bright-red rocker is nearly 43 feet high and rests on 31.5-foot-long legs that weigh one ton each. As its name implies, however, it’s only the largest rocker on Route 66—there’s now an even bigger one in Illinois, constructed in 2015. If you’re driving the Mother Road, you’ll want to stop here anyway to snap photos and pick up souvenirs in the adjacent tourist shop.
