The Texas portion of Route 66 is just 179 miles long, but there’s plenty to see and do in such a short distance. Few people know, for example, that the geographical midpoint of the Mother Road is right here in the Lone Star State.

Easily one of the most charming Route 66 towns in Texas, Adrian is so worth the trip.
