Get Your Kicks on Route 66
Since the invention of the automobile, American’s have been heeding the call of the open road—and for nearly 60s years they traveled en masse along U.S. Route 66 as it wound from Chicago to L.A., more than 2000 miles all the way.
Whether you call it the Mother Road, Main Street of America, or the Will Rogers Highway, driving along Route 66 is an epic road trip that draws visitors from around the country and the world.
A tribute to history and nostalgia of Route 66, the Oklahoma Route 66 Museum in Clinton, Oklahoma is a “must see” pit stop. The museum features the ideas, images, and myths surrounding the iconic highway with some of the most popular exhibits including fully-restored neon signs and popular music from the different eras.
The self-guided tours end in the museum’s “Now and Future” room, which was recently added to give visitors a feel for what Route 66 has to offer today. Before you go, be sure to visit the museum gift shop to find the perfect piece of Route 66 memorabilia to commemorate your visit.
