Historic Route 66

Wigwam Motel Route 66 Holbrook Arizona AZTake a detour down memory lane on Route 66.  It's been immortalized in films, songs, books, and - now - in GPS Maps.  There are several great segments of the original route John Steinbeck called "the Mother Road," and in-between there's always the interstate.  The path to adventure traveled by Tod and Buz in their red Corvette on the namesake 1960's TV series still exists - you just might need a little help finding it with your GPS.
