The Main Street of America- Route 66

To celebrate “Keep America Beautiful” month, I’m taking you on a Route 66 roadtrip.

This famous highway was created in 1926 and stretches for 2,451 miles, from Chicago, Illinois to Santa Monica, California. Over the years, it has gained various nicknames including the Mother Road and the Main Street of America.

There are tons of places to visit on Route 66, but here are some of my favorite.

Cadillac Ranch- Amarillo, Texas 

 

The Painted Desert- Arizona 

 

Ed Galloway’s Totem Pole Park- Chelsea, Oklahoma 

Lou Mitchell’s- Chicago, Illinois

Santa Monica Pier- Santa Monica, California
