I am so happy we took the scenic Route 66 on our way to the Grand Canyon. Made the trip so much more memorable. All the fun nostalgic stops and just cruising the 66. We started in Barstow, and headed East. Worth the extra miles.

Surprisingly, the surrounding gift shops and stores do not distract from Route 66's nostalgic value. It's a scenic stretch of road; many great photo opportunities.
