View Nostalgic Artifacts And Memorabilia At The Route 66 Association Of Illinois Museum
Back in 1926, a roadway was established to connect the Midwest to the West Coast, from Chicago all the way to Los Angeles. This was Route 66, the Mother Road, which attracted thousands of road trip warriors each year and today remains among the best road trips in the USA. Over the decades, motels, roadside attractions, and communities sprang up along the route. After it was decommissioned in 1985, Route 66 was no longer considered a major roadway, and travel started to wane.

I'm an east coast girl living in a west coast world. I've worked in the entertainment industry for much of my adult life and I love photography, writing, and traveling around the U.S. as well as to far-flung locations around the world! Travel is my life and writing about it is a dream.
