I've had the pleasure of running portions of Route 66. In some places the physical road is unpaved and virtually impassable. In many states, Route 66 parallels the interstate highway, and in some areas you can see signs calling it "Historic Route 66."
Route 66 truly holds a special place in American history. It provided an economic and social link between the West and the Midwest of the U.S., offering an artery for millions of people to relocate and change their lives. Route 66 assisted in transforming the West from a wild frontier to a modern community. Route 66 also showcases some of the most beautiful scenery in America.
If you haven't yet checked out Route 66, I highly recommend it. As the song says, "Get your kicks on Route 66!"
