The drive along this stretch of Route 66 was very enjoyable. We spotted lots of the old signs with the help of a map from the visitors centre. We were not travelling the route but staying in Albuquerque for a few days. With a few hours to spare we decided to drive along it.

My family and I drove Route 66 to California. I was super excited about the stretch through Albuquerque. I was sadly disappointed. First of all, the old signs and the way the city has created the stretch of road VISUALLY is extremely nice. The amount of homeless was alarming and just plain sad. This was just not what I expected... More

We organized our caravan route from California to Bowling Green, KY to follow as much of Route 66 as possible. This night included a very large gathering of enthusiasts (approx 350) for an afternoon event before returning to the Crowne Plaza hotel.

I love the whole travel the open road idea. Route 66 is really the idea of getting and just seeing what you might happen upon. I have travelled the section in Albuquerque to Santa Fe and sections in CA, AZ, MO and IL. Still need to fill in the rest. I love all the items you see along way and... More

There are parts of Route 66 in CA that feel like old ghost towns. Historic road that used to be a main highway. Lots to see and much more interesting out if town.

Rooms were nice, the beds were wonderful. Room had mini fridge. The Thunder restaurant had good food and cold beer, there was even a band playing above the bar. Buffet was good, there is also a Johnny Rockets on site. Pool was very cool albeit small. Game room for the kids was always crowded. The Legends theatre is an awesome... More

The best parts of Route 66 are found in New Mexico and Arizona. While some of the towns you pass through, do have some of the old buildings remaining ( Some are really cool to be sure! ) there really isn't all that much of interest, unless you're of that generation and are into the nostalgia aspect of a bygone...

"Take a trip down Rt. 66". What a great way to sightsee our country with a Retro feeling. No Freeways, interesting Ma & Pa shops, eateries & other business's. You will even find some places that are listed on the Historical Registry.....
