Owner description: Affectionately dubbed the "Mother Road," this 2,400-mile route was the first all-weather, continuously paved highway linking Chicago and Los Angeles. The storied path is legendary for spawning America's signature roadside architecture and attractions, vestiges of which remain today.

The Route 66 has thousands of miles. If you do not have much time to traverse the whole route and wants to meet a typical place, I suggest the stretch between the towns of Kingman and Seligman, Arizona.
Be sure to stop at Hackberry General Store, along the route between these towns.

We stopped in Seligman on our way to Vegas. It is the town that inspired the movie cars, so if you have kids would be awesome to stop here as they have lots of cars that are made to look like the movie characters. It a town that looks like it stopped developing 40 years ago, which is kind of cool. There are so many souvenir shops and every kind of souvenir and collectable you can think of. Nice way to see history and keep small towns alive.

We enjoyed driving part of Route 66 in California and almost all of Arizona. Very fun way to travel. It is nice to get off the Interstate and go at the slower pace to see some awesome historic places in our country. We really enjoyed our trip and are convinced that we need to travel the whole length of the road someday! If you love history, drive this road.

Joplin, KS, was hosting the festival this year so we decided to head down that way from KC. I downloaded a Route 66 app and would have been lost w/o it. We had to ask when we got off Highway 71 how to hook up with 66 -- not well marked. But we were just 1 block away from it! Once you get on it, you go through neighborhoods, and come across marked highway signs and cool old places. Many were closed on Thursday afternoon (the Superman Museum and Soda Fountain, for example), but we took pics of the drive-in and lots of retro stuff. Biscuits and gravy for lunch, of course, in Webb City. We could only drive for a few hours before we had to head back. I'd like 66 near Chicago or St. Louis better, I think, but we enjoyed what we experienced.

What? you were expecting funky motels and drive in food places? Well, the motels are either boarded up or soooo funky, you don't want to know and the drive ins are dives. Route 66 is a legend in your own mind...period. Some sections are great...like Nob Hill, but that's not because they happen to be on the route...visit the "areas" along here and enjoy, but the Route, itself, is long past it's prime. Sorry...I calls 'em as I sees 'em.
