Welcome to Historic Route 66: drive the "THE MOTHER ROAD"!
"The Route 66 self-guided road trip on a Harley-Davidson was marvelous,
it exceeded our expectations. The route and instructions on the GPS were
clear and the Points of Interest were especially useful. We
enjoyed going to the diners and soaking up the atmosphere of the Mother
era. Visiting museums along the way was a great way of learning more
of the history. We met many interesting people along the way; the locals were always so
interested in people following the route especially when on a motor bike! We were surprised that there are considerable lengths of the Route 66
roadway remaining and it was thrilling riding along these stretches.
A thoroughly enjoyable experience of a lifetime - highly recommended."

Maps of Route 66
Route 66 - the once thriving state highway system from
Chicago to Los Angeles
was paved and ready for the automobiles and their adventurous drivers over 97 years ago. It served millions of pilgrims until the "modern" highways system took over. Route 66 was decommissioned and signs removed in 1985. Businesses closed, people moved on. But really, Route 66 died? We hardly believe it, as you will see it is very much alive! The system ceased to exist 39 years ago but instantly a legend was born!
Recently there are efforts by various Route 66 associations to post new signs (Historic Route 66, Historic Byways, Old Route 66 etc), however, it is not always easy to find the original roads.
We suggest to
download a Route 66 app
to your phone and use it for navigation. The app has got all the original roads as well as attractions on the way!
85% of original Route 66 is still drivable (car, bus, motorcycle) and well kept awaiting you, the adventurous traveler to explore! Get your kicks on Route 66!
