We were in Albuquerque in April and ended up on Route 66 quite by accident going to the ABQ Bio Park. It is under heavy construction, so if you're planning to drive through during any of the high traffic times of day, be aware that...More

This is a great stretch of road within Albuquerque showing many of the old diners, gas stations and hotels. Unfortunately this is a lot of blight along the route and only certain areas are being revitalized. And the road construction is horrible along this route....More

I made a deliberate Route 66 road trip several years ago, so of course, I went through Albuquerque. But I have returned many times and still feel the excitement. Many of the older motels are gone, but some remain. The Route goes right through Central...More

It is neat to drive on the old Route 66 as the song inspires you to do from the 60's. Have driven on portions in several states and just causes you to reflect about the carefree way we used to be.

Loved taking Route 66. Roadkill memorabilia. Interesting people and lots of places to stop. Traffic was never a problem.

It's not easy to follow the Route 66. Would recommend if you're into the history of Route 66 and have relaxing drive time. Fun little nostalgia stops along the way.

There's a few cool Route 66 signs and things in old town heading into the newer part of town. See my other reviews for places to eat and stop, I can't remember then off the top of my head now, although there is a cool ice... More
