Kind of fun. . . .
on November 29, 2014
This is kind of fun to look at. The series of maps shows how one can come close to traversing the country--from Chicago to Santa Monica--along the route of Route 66. This is not purely possible; some stretches of the old road are gone. At other places, what was Route 66 is not part of one interstate highway or another. But this provides an opportunity to have a little fun--tracing out Route 66.
One additional reason that I am interested in this is that, in 1977, a honeymoon car trip followed a stretch of the original Route 66 in Arizona. It was hot and uncomfortable (no air conditioning in the car), but it was cool to drive over the pavement from the old Route 66.
There is one map for each state that 66 crossed--Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. In some state, there isn't much of Route 66 left. In other states, there are some stretches left (in Arizona, it is designated as a state route 66--not US 66). One of my more enjoyable experiences was--while in Chicago--standing under the sign saying, "Begin Route 66."
There isn't great detail on these maps. They will point out businesses that had relevance when the original highway was a key link across the states. It describes how you can experience as much of the old route as possible.
Anyway, if you want some kicks regarding Route 66, take a look at these maps.
