Historic Route 66

One of America’s original highways, Route 66 has guided drivers from Chicago to Los Angeles since 1926. If you ever plan to motor west, start off with a bite at Steak n' Shake in the town where it got its start before getting sticky at Funks Grove Pure Maple Sirup, where you can snag syrup and Route 66 memorabilia. Grab a concrete at Ted Drewes’ Frozen Custard in St. Louis before marveling at POPS’s 66-foot tall soda bottle sculpture in Oklahoma City. Gorge on a gluten-free pie at 575 Pizzeria in Amarillo before tucking into authentic Mexican grub at Frontier Restaurant in Albuquerque. Pass the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert in Arizona before ending your ride in the city of Angels.
