One of the most famous symbols of the American west, Route 66's significance has been commemorated in songs, movies, and various other aspects of popular culture. Built in 1926, the 2,448 mile (3,940 km) strip of road was one of the first highways built in the United States. It spanned 8 states, running from Chicago, Illinois to Los Angeles, California, passing through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona along the way.

Route 66 holds special meaning to the many migrants who traveled along its path toward the west, particularly during the Dust Bowl of the 1930s. In 1985, the route was removed from the United States Highway System as it was considered to be no longer be relevant. Now known as "Historic Route 66," the highway still evokes the same sense of wonder and excitement that comes from journeying west to a land of possibilities. 

Practical Info

Route 66 runs through Flagstaff, and is easily accessible by car.
