Once stretching 2448 miles from Chicago to Santa Monica, Route 66 lingers on long after it was officially decommisioned and removed from highway system. Still seen on road signs and firmly rooted in the hearts of Route 66 fans, the highway refuses to die. Subject of song, novels, motion pictures and a television show, Route 66 dominated travel plans in eight states and aided over 200,000 people move westward during the Great Depression. Post World War II families took to the highway in record numbers to see America. Roadside filling stations, diners, motels, trailer camps, souvenir shops and garish roadside attractions seem to spring up overnight along this great highway.
