9781595800596: Route 66 Adventure Handbook: Turbocharged Fourth Edition

Route 66 Adventure Handbook is your personal guide to the vanishing American roadside, with all of its exuberance, splendor, and absurdity.

For this updated and expanded fourth edition, Drew Knowles has included it all: magnificent architecture, natural wonders, Art Deco masterpieces, vintage motels and cafes, unique museums, offbeat attractions, fascinating artifacts and icons, and kitschy tourist traps. The addition of city maps, showing the multiple paths of Route 66 and displaying the exact locations of points of interest, is a major improvement over the already critically acclaimed third edition of the book. The fourth edition also includes hundreds of beautiful new photographs and the addition of dozens of new attractions.

Filled with wonderfully quirky side trips and fun bits of trivia, Route 66 Adventure Handbook is the most authoritative resource for anyone looking to explore the Mother Road. Fasten your seatbelts!

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!
