Route 66 Still Kicks and Seven things you didn’t know

60239102586840MGreat article on CNN about Route 66 and the Seven things you didn’t know – just a few of the points:

1. Over 2,000 of Route 66’s original 2,448 connected miles are still approachable, if not always drivable.

2. John Steinbeck conceived of “The Grapes of Wrath” on a late 1937 summer drive from Chicago west on Route 66, which he called the “long concrete path.”

The rest of the article is here.

Interestingly, the article was written by Rick Antonson, Canadian travel writer and Author of “Route 66 Still Kicks, Driving America’s Main Street” (available here) he’s the president and CEO of Tourism Vancouver, and past chair of the board for Destination Marketing Association International, based in Washington, D.C..
