Fully revised and expanded, this guide to all the exuberance, splendor, and absurdity of Route 66 includes details on the magnificent architecture, natural wonders, vintage motels and cafes, unique museums, offbeat attractions, fascinating artifacts and icons, and kitschy tourist traps that dot this famous stretch of road. Now featuring dozens of city maps that pinpoint locations of interest, this painstakingly researched handbook provides information on how to locate the multiple paths of Route 66, including unmarked portions of the old highway; contact information for Route 66 associations and local visitor bureaus; an index of all Route 66 towns; and anecdotes, trivia, attractions, and suggested side trips. From well-known hotspots to obscure, off-the-beaten-path destinations, this inspiring guide presents a wealth of information for both first-time adventurers and seasoned travelers.

From the Publisher:

Veteran Route 66 explorer Drew Knowles takes us on a city-by-city state-by-state tour of America's most celebrated highway in the Route 66 Adventure Handbook.

Ride along as Drew uncovers a wealth of features--some well-known, some obscure, but all of them fascinating--all along the length of America's Main Street, Route 66.

It's all here: Explore places steeped in history, bask in the splendor of nature's beauty, and drink in some of the world's most outlandish tourist attractions.

The Route 66 Adventure Handbook is your guide to the vanishing American roadside in all its excitement, splendor--and, yes!--absurdity.

This special Adventure Pack edition even includes a set of four colorful postcards depicting some of the most well-known Route 66 icons. Fasten your seat belts!
