Since 1926, driving down Route 66 has been the experience of a lifetime for travelers, adventurers, desperados and dreamers. Being the oldest Route 66 resource on the web, the Historic 66 website is dedicated to providing information for all those who want to learn more about the legendary Mother Road.

While officially Route 66 no longer exists, a great deal of it remains to be driven and enjoyed. The turn-by-turn road description will guide you on your journey through all eight states from Chicago to Los Angeles. Not only will it help you to stay on track, but you’ll also find some background information on the hundreds of roadside attractions that dot the landscape.

The Route 66 community can gather in our forum, which is available for discussions regarding Route 66: Asking questions, sharing travel stories, recommendations, announcing events, etc.

In the picture gallery, you can find tons of inspiration for your upcoming voyage or take a trip down memory lane. Thanks to the preservation organizations, the volunteers and the business owners, a lot of these landmarks can still be admired in real life. Some treasures, however, have disappeared and can only be explored through pictures.

Are you ready for the big adventure and want to start building your own memories? As old Route 66 is not indicated on current roadmaps, you will need a detailed map and guide before hitting the road and getting your kicks on Route 66!
