Gary’s Gay Parita on Missouri Route 66

Bonjour and welcome to Gary’s Gay Parita on Route 66 in Paris Springs, Missouri.

This Missouri tourist attraction is a replica of a 1930s Sinclair service station complete with original pumps and Route 66 memorabilia. 

The site was restored by Gary Turner, a Route 66 ambassador who loved telling history and giving tips to travelers who stopped in. He died in 2015 but his legacy lives on at this iconic Mother Road attraction.

While you won’t be able to fill up your tank here, you certainly will get your fill of nostalgia.
