Route 66 is a main transportation axis connecting major cities in the United States. America’s first highway connecting the East with the Far West, extending from Chicago through the states of Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona and ending in Santa Monica, California. Visitors can try driving on Highway 66 to experience many interesting things on this legendary road.
Route 66 is known to Americans as the “Mother Road”. This main road is also associated with the classic song called Get Your Kicks on Route 66, first performed by famous singer Nat King Cole in 1946. Route 66 was once associated with America’s automobile history when Ford’s legendary Ford Model T cars were sold across the United States in the early 20th century. Today, Route 66 is gradually becoming familiar to car lovers.
Along Route 66 there are many things worth seeing and enjoying. Alien-style motels, car repair shops, ghost towns, and resting places for long-distance truck drivers bring visitors many new experiences.
In Springfield, Missouri, where Route 66 begins, visitors will experience a ride through Fanstatic limestone cave, to see strangely shaped stalactites. Texas will bring visitors a new space with Amarillo, the state’s famous city. Visitors can also visit the Cadillac Ranch, with 19 colorful Cadillacs buried in the ground, somewhat summarizing the road in a very American style.
Coming to New Mexico, visitors will have the opportunity to admire many classic car models from famous American brands at the Route 66 Auto Museum. In Arizona, visitors can visit the city of Flagstaff to see firsthand the giant hole caused by a meteorite falling to earth thousands of years ago. This is also the gateway to the majestic Grand Canyon.
For the American people, Route 66 not only contributes to the development of local commerce but is also a symbol of victory, independent spirit, freedom of immigration, culture, history, and economy. Today, although it has been replaced by a modern freeway system, every year millions of tourists from all over the world still come here to experience this historic road.
