Before a web of interstate highways cris-crossed the country, Route 66 was known as the Main Street of America. It earned this title due to the millions of migrants who traveled its many miles, seeking a better life out West. And it was along this route that modern America sprang up—motels, fast-food restaurants, and one-of-a-kind roadside attractions. Retrace the path of so many before, and take a nostalgic journey through pure Americana.
