The neon is great, but by far the coolest thing is the singing highway. It is on the way to the top of Sandia Mountain. Set your speed to 45 and you will hear America The Beautiful.

Traveling Route 66 was a fantastic journey. We started in Chicago and ended in Los Angeles. Although a lot of Route 66 is no longer there, some of it is replaced by I 40. It is worth following Route 66 when able, to see the old towns and the way it used to be. There were things to see round... More

Route 25 is old route 66. With all it's old time glory, it is still kind of exciting to drive down route 66.

We travelled the whole of Route 66 by coach and this stretch is as picturesque as any. Russell's travel centre and the Blue Swallow Court Motel are very worthwhile, as is the ElRancho hotel and the statue of the Code Talker

Rt 66 in Albuquerque is full of fun things to do. The downtown nightlife is hopping (especially on the weekends). Crazy, fun people everywhere. Lots of cars (low-riders & hot-rods (muscle cars) cruising--just like they did 50 years ago. That is just the tip of the iceberg. Get down here & see for yourself--you need this experience.

Worthwhile for an hr or two. Obviously, you have to have a car to do this, but the old route 66 from Santa Rosa to Albuquerque's Old Town is probably the best part. It's recommended that you drive slow....45-55 MPH. Interesting photo stops and a few places are still open.

We found the singing Route 66 outside Albuquerque traveling East to Tijeras - it was awesome!! Continued on to Moriarty for a picture at the last working Whiting Brothers Gas Station. So much history and the road is not crowded and fun to drive.

Driving Route 66 anywhere is a pleasure and should never be hurried. There are many things to see and many places to stop all along the route! Drive it whenever you can!
