Product description

"Route 66 Adventure Handbook" is your personal guide to the vanishing American roadside, with all of its exuberance, splendor, and absurdity. For this updated and expanded fourth edition, Drew Knowles has included it all: magnificent architecture, natural wonders, Art Deco masterpieces, vintage motels and cafes, unique museums, offbeat attractions, fascinating artifacts and icons, and kitschy tourist traps. The addition of city maps, showing the multiple paths of Route 66 and displaying the exact locations of points of interest, is a major improvement over the already critically acclaimed third edition of the book. The fourth edition also includes hundreds of beautiful new photographs and the addition of dozens of new attractions. Filled with wonderfully quirky side trips and fun bits of trivia, "Route 66 Adventure Handbook" is the most authoritative resource for anyone looking to explore the Mother Road. Fasten your seatbelts!
