Since the late 1920s, Route 66 has been called “America’s Highway.” Of course the Route 66 of legend is somewhat of a distant memory, but some enthusiastic lovers of history keep the spirit and portions of the road itself very much alive. There are still old gas stations and eateries along the way that will remind one of simpler times.
Case in point is Delgadillo’s Snow Cap Drive-In, which is located in Seligman, Arizona. The kitschy roadside stop is perfect for children and adults alike featuring everything you’d expect on the menu, as well as a few surprises. There are even souvenirs depicting the famed cross-country route. Wait. Route 66 isn’t exactly cross-country. Some believe is traverses the entire length of the U.S. from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Not true. The original Route 66 started in Chicago and ran through the states of Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and finally, California.
Today long portions of the road are closed, but can be picked up at various locations off of larger routes. At one time Route 66 was so popular it even inspired a hit song, “Get Your Kicks on Route 66,” as well as a TV series in the 1960s that aired on CBS.
