America’s highway, Route 66, warrants getting off the Interstate system and taking the back roads, which, in the case of Route 66, was previously the main highway.
This post highlights some of the route through Oklahoma as we traveled westward. We need to schedule another trip to highlight travels from Chicago to Oklahoma and from Arizona to California.
There are many websites that discuss some of the history of Route 66 and its significance to modern road travels beginning in the U.S. Historic66.com provides good insight and respective photos along and near the route. https://www.historic66.com/faq/cars.php
The Historic 66 website has a detailed list of activities throughout the year associated with Route 66. There are various car shows that certainly interests the car and retro enthusiasts.
Road Trip USA has excellent information as well. Here is a map of the route through Oklahoma. https://roadtripusa.com/route-66/oklahoma/
You’ll notice Route 66 in Oklahoma is also Interstate 44 from Kansas to Oklahoma City, where it then becomes Interstate 40. Our travel took us from Arkansas on Interstate 40 into Oklahoma City.
I’ll post more images later to showcase a few towns along Route 66.
