The Lore of Route 66:
The Main Street of America

Route 66 became one of the most famous roads in the United States, outdistancing others such as the Lincoln Highway.

It is popular lore in movies, songs, books like “The Grapes of Wrath”, and TV shows.
The legendary highway was known far and wide for its variety of “mom and pop” motels, neon lights, drive-ins, quirky roadside attractions, flat tires, cars with no air conditioning, dangerous curves, steep hills, and narrow lanes.

Today, there are more than 250 buildings, bridges, road alignments and other sites along Route 66 that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The movie “Easy Rider” was filmed at several locations along Route 66. The move “Thelma and Louise” also featured Route 66 references and scenes.

The popularity stuck, and continues to grow today! So … get out and explore Historic U.S. Route 66!
