Drove on Route 66 for business and it has a charm you don't often see. Like Route 1 north of Boston. Plenty of things to see and places to stop. Nostalgic is best way to put it.

Trevor: What do you mean by "outlet"? Route 66 is a highway constructed in 1926. It is not a freeway-type highway, and through Albuquerque, it's known as Central Avenue, the main street through ABQ.
