For all of you who want to experience the full spectrum of America, Route 66 is for you. Use the ribbon of highway as a "guide" taking you from the glitz of big cities to small-town America. Eat at the old diners and restaurants, talk to the locals, but above all stop and explore. Have a wonderful trip. We offer some additional tips
