Biker bar, BBQ and bras – everything at the Elbow Inn on 66 - Yep, this bar and BBQ joint is chockfull of atmosphere. Formerly the 1929 Munger-Moss Sandwich Shop, and now a popular spot for bikers and bar-b-que.

Rock Island Pony Bridge – a "Grapes of Wrath" film location - The west end was a location in “Grapes of Wrath” starring Henry Fonda, where Grandpa dies and is buried. (The bridge had been there only six years at that time.)

Bright shiny objects in the Route 66 desert – Elmer Long's Bottle Ranch - Even though Elmer’s teeming forest of bottle trees stands alongside one of those desolate stretches of old Route 66 between Barstow and San Bernadino, he says it doesn’t have much to do with the famous roadway.

Big Blue Whale – landlocked and great on Route 66 - Built by Hugh Davis in the 70s as a surprise (?!) anniversary gift for his wife Zelda, who collected whale figurines. It is one of the best known landmarks on Route 66. The big whale speaks to a simpler time, when a swimming hole didn’t need all kinds of fancy wave machines and gadgetry.

Road Trip 66 gets a shout out in Hot Rod Magazine. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/road-trip-66/id415478066?mt=8
Whether you’re going to go the whole of Route 66, which in total takes 37 hours of driving, or just a segment, here's a guide for first timers.

Andy Griffith Museum – it's a little piece of Mayberry in NC - Howdy! Few can forget the beloved Sheriff of Mayberry. That’s especially true for the citizens of Mt. Airy, the boyhood hometown of Andy Griffith, whose streets and hometown characters bear a striking resemblance to the fictional Mayberry.

Giant head of Abraham Lincoln looms large over I-80 - Talk about a head of state. Once upon a time, Ol’ Abe stood watch at Sherman Summit, the highest point on his namesake coast-to-coast highway, Lincoln Highway.

A mighty fancy men's room at the Madonna Inn - It’s a sprawling pink and white motel complex on the edge of town, with pictures and paintings of the Madonna family that owns it (and big stars who knew them) liberally sprinkled around the lobby.

Skip the traditional motel – Shady Dell Trailer Court - What a great idea! Travel trailers as motel rooms. Those aluminum marvels from postwar America that embodied the notion of “let’s hit the road.”
