POPS – Arcadia
Address: 660 Oklahoma 66, Arcadia, OK 73007, United States
One of the more recent additions along the highway, POPS is now a part of the roadside landscape and is a truly unique destination.

Visit POPS at night to watch the sculpture’s LED lights fill the sky with changing color.
A four-ton, 66-foot sculpture of a soda bottle covered in dazzling multi-colored LED lights in front of POPS can’t be missed and pays tribute to the main attraction at POPS: over 600 kinds of soda. From berry soda to classic cola, POPS has it all.
