    NAVIGATION NOTE: You can click on any Route 66 State or the East or West Route 66 shields to start your “travels” on the Mother Road in either direction. Pages will open to the particular state you choose, from there you will find an interactive state map. Drive your mouse along Route 66 by clicking on the map anywhere along the Mother Road to go to that area of Route 66. Route 66 is traditionally thought of as a east to west highway, the route from Chicago to LA. This web site is set up like that, as if you were going west on Route 66. But of course you can go anywhere and in any direction your heart desires. Have Fun!
