Get Your Kicks on Route 66

Route 66 is the ultimate American road trip. Officially opened in 1926, Route 66 is 2448 miles long running from Chicago, IL to Santa Monica, CA. The Newschool Nomads started out determined to stay on the official Historic Route 66 whenever possible but quickly discovered that with limited time (and toddlers) they needed to travel between major destinations by interstate weaving off and on the byway to see points and towns of interest.
