Wordless Wednesday-Historic Route 66

Wordless Wednesday-Historic Route 66

This past weekend David and I went to Branson, Mo and was able to (partially) check off another item on our bucket list; traveling Historic Route 66.

Traveling Route 66 from Chicago to LA is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time, and are finally planning, but just getting to drive it from Springfield, Mo to St. Louis, MO was a thrill.

My only “complaint” was that Missouri didn’t have Route 66 very well marked. There were a number of times that we found ourselves at an intersection in the middle of nowhere wondering which way to turn. But, even that couldn’t extinguish our excitement, it just added to the adventure!

There were lots of nostalgic roadside attractions as well as incredible countryside views, and, so, that’s what I’m sharing with you this week.

I hope you enjoy them and have a wonderful Wordless Wednesday!

    I travel Route 66 about once a month when I go shopping in Victorville, CA. Not as pretty as the Missouri part, though.

    Haven’t been through that part of Route 66, but have done much of the Arizona, New Mexico, California section. Love the old vintage motel signs – so cool.

    I’m so old I remember my parents talking about the tv show Route 66. They loved it.

    Blessings to you,
