Miss USA 1966, the 15th Miss USA pageant, was televised live from Miami Beach, Florida, on May 21, 1966.

The pageant was won by Maria Remenyi of California, who was crowned by outgoing titleholder Sue Downey of Ohio. Remenyi was the second woman from California to win the Miss USA title, and went on to Top 15 at Miss Universe 1966.

Idaho and South Dakota did not send a delegate in 1966, making this the last Miss USA pageant in which not all states were represented. (The only subsequent pageant with fewer than 51 delegates in the live telecast – 1981 – resulted from a state representative being disqualified during the preliminary judging.)
