What you find here, what you don't:

There's plenty of information on the web about The Mother Road. We do not intend to compete with travel guides or roadbooks. We simply want to show you a few impressions we got during our road trips. Some places we stayed and where we had good fun.

Therefore, you won't find historical information or recommendations for driving the alternative loops that once existed. However, we are happy to provide more information on request.

Three things we found to be important: 1) Take your time (all in all we spent more than ten weeks exploring 66); 2) explore all drivable parts and 3) get to meet the people.

But no matter how much time you spend - there's always more to see and to explore. So enjoy your visit. We are glad if one of our tips could help you to get a special experience.

 

 

The Road

 

The Song

If you ever plan to motor west,
travel my way, take the highway that's the best.
Get your kicks on Route Sixty-six.

It winds from Chicago to L.A.,
more than two thousand miles all the way.
Get your kicks on Route Sixty-six.

Now you go thru Saint Looey, Joplin, Missouri
and Oklahoma City is mighty pretty.
You'll see Amarillo, Gallup, New Mexico,
Flagstaff, Arizona, don't forget Winona,
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino.

Won't you get hip to this timely tip:
When you make that california trip.
Get your kicks on Route Sixty-six,
Get your kicks on Route Sixty-six.
