My friends and I stopped by the Route 66 Historic District while driving through Amarillo. There was a really cute RT 66 sign we took a picture with. Worth it if you have a couple free minutes and are all about those Insta Pics.

This Route 66 historic district was okay at best. Yes, there is history in this district but I’m just not sure it’s worth taking the time to see. It is mediocre at best when compared to other Route 66 districts.

We have travel only a few hundred miles on “66” but it is always a treat. To see Cadillac Ranch was a surprise but it was really just off I-40. I would love to do the whole route.

We rode through this area and were not impressed. There are a few buildings that were supposed to be from the days when Route 66 was the highway to travel.

A shame to see it in disuse, but folks are really trying to keep the history alive. Great neon at night.

There is not a whole lot on Route 66 but there are some great stops with friendly people and good food. Make sure you get off the main road and visit the towns along the way.

There is not much else I can say about this except for the title of my review. They have made the effort to erect a sign as you head into the district but its not much for the hoopla it gets. A little street-scaping, building...More

Seems rundown. Not worth the drive to see a bunch of biker bars and soso shops. Did not even get out of our car after cruising up and down the strip

There are several shops you can walk to. Mostly antiques and some Route 66 stuff. Most shops open at 10 am, I did not stick around too long, did try any restaurant
