Don't do Route 66 without it!,
This review is from: Route 66: EZ66 Guide for Travelers (Spiral-bound)
An invaluable tool for travelling Route 66 from beginning to end, as important as your vehicle. This book will keep you on track, informed, and make things "EZ" for you. I just used this book on a two-week trip (Sept 2006), and couldn't imagine doing it without this guide. (Although Illinois is very well signed and easy to follow on it's own.)
Get this, as well as the "Route 66 Adventure Handbook", and you'll be armed with all you need for a fun and complete trip down The Mother Road. I can't recommend these books strongly enough!
I can't, however, recommend the "Route 66 Lodging/Dining Guide", as it was a real let-down for us. Incomplete in some sections, useless in others. (the recommended "Lincoln Motel" in Chandler OK was a filthy dump!) Just find your lodging & dining as you go along the route, and don't be afraid to try the various offerings along the way. You might be pleasantly surprised! (Ask to see rooms before you check in, though.)
Oh, and be sure to check the EZ66 author's updates before leaving! (He offers up to date info that didn't make it into the book.)
