Route 66 Trip

Recommended Posts

I'm planning a 2013 trip going west. I've been a big fan of Route 66 for many years. Unfortunately, I've only done portions in Arizona. I have plenty of books on the history, but what I need is the definitive book re: Route 66 today. Including significant sites that are still standing, maps and suggested restaurants. If you have a book or other reference you've found helpful, would you be kind enough to share with me? Thanks, Joel

If you have an iPhone or iPad - check out "Road Trip 66" http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/road-trip-66/id415478066?mt=8. It is updated about 2-4 times a year, and has the original routes mapped out. Plus, it will find you and show what attractions, eateries, etc. are nearby.

 

Everyone always raves about the "Here it is! Map Series" http://amzn.to/OebhGK, and I like the Route 66 EZ Guide http://amzn.to/PdCeeN. The National Historic Route 66 has some great bundle packs of essential guides.http://www.national66.org/route-66-online-store/

 

And here is a list of resource that I use. http://roadtrip66.com/resources/

 

Happy trails!

Good advice from Queenodesign. The EZ 66 Guide she mentioned is top notch. There is some good route information online here and here. I'm still in the process of getting home from my own 66 trip so am a little hurried. I will revisit this when I get home.
