Have done parts of Rt.66 on two separate road trips to NM and Arizona. Although some of the glitz and glory of bygone days are left to the imagination in spots, Rt. 66 still holds an allure to the romantic and inquisitive. Traveling Rt. 66, you take the good with the bad. It may make sense to do as we... 更多
Unfortunately this part of RT. 66 is very poor and run down...to the point of being depressing. Abandoned single wide trailers abound, very little culture left to see. And the "Historic US Hwy 66" signs are sad...as they have nothing to show in most places other than pothole patched, or not, road.
I've done bits of Route 66 on various trips over the years but never wanted to travel along it. This year in Albuquerque I decided to do the local bit. It is an insight into what travel was light years ago when the motel was the place to stay, it was more basic travel but I think we all have... 更多
Although much of Route 66 is no longer there you do see signs where some parts have been retained and it is worth getting off in some of the old towns.

The neon is great, but by far the coolest thing is the singing highway. It is on the way to the top of Sandia Mountain. Set your speed to 45 and you will hear America The Beautiful.

Rt 66 in Albuquerque is full of fun things to do. The downtown nightlife is hopping (especially on the weekends). Crazy, fun people everywhere. Lots of cars (low-riders & hot-rods (muscle cars) cruising--just like they did 50 years ago. That is just the tip of the iceberg. Get down here & see for yourself--you need this experience.
