You'd be hard pressed to find a driver who hasn't heard of the legendary Route 66, one of the original US highways often known as the Mother Road. The famous highway originally ran from Chicago, Illinois, through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, before ending at Los Angeles, encompassing a total of 2,448 miles.

It was recognized in popular culture by both a hit song and a television show in the 1950s and 1960s, before being officially removed in 1985. For drivers who still want a taste of the route, Portions of the road that passed through Illinois, Missouri, New Mexico, and Arizona have been designated a National Scenic Byway named "Historic Route 66".

In 1990, Route 66 associations were founded separately in both Arizona and Missouri. As the popularity and mythical stature of Route 66 has continued to grow, demands have begun to mount to improve signage, return Route 66 to road atlases and revive its status as a continuous routing.

Along these lines Route 66 has been established as a National Scenic Byway in Illinois, Arizona and New Mexico with National Scenic Byway status pending in Oklahoma and Missouri as of 2007. Another move is also afoot that aims to reinstate Route 66 as an official U.S. Route. Until then, drivers can still enjoy Historic Route 66 for a scenic and historical journey they will not forget.

Even today, visitors and locals report seeing strange lights in the night sky. As a result, the E.T. Highway draws hundreds of curious visitors. Day-trippers from Las Vegas routinely stop in Rachel before venturing off to hopefully discover the unexpected. Seerachel-


For holidaymakers seeking some fun in the sun, a cruise along the Overseas Highway through Florida is the perfect drive option. The Overseas Highway is a 127.5-mile long road carrying U.S. Route 1 through the Florida Keys. The Overseas Highway, the southernmost leg of U.S. Highway 1 and sometimes called the Highway That Goes to Sea is a modern wonder. The road, that follows a trail originally blazed in 1912 by Henry Flagler's Florida East Coast Railroad, stretches from Miami to Key West.

Today, motorists can travel the highway in less than four hours from Miami. However, drivers should allow time to experience the natural beauty of the ever-changing scenery of the seas and wilderness bordering the roadway, and the magnificent sunrises and sunsets the Sunshine State is famous for. see


For travellers looking for exciting nightlife Las Vegas is the place to be, located in the southwestern corner of Nevada near the borders of California and Arizona. All the action in Vegas is centered on one broad avenue that stretches from the southern fringe of the city northward for a dozen miles until it reaches the heart of old downtown. This is Las Vegas Boulevard, commonly known as "the Strip". Nearly all of the major casinos are lined up along its sides.

A drive down Las Vegas Boulevard takes you past the pyramid of Luxor casino, the skyline of New York casino, the Eifel Tower of Paris casino, the great tent of the Circus casino and the lofty tower of the Stratosphere casino. Eventually, it takes you to downtown Vegas and Fremont Street, home of the historic old gambling parlors like Binyons and the Golden Nugget. Just driving down the strip past all these spectacular casino resorts is a fantastic experience. At night, "the strip" comes alive with miles of colored neon and millions of dancing lights, making it a perfect place for a driving adventure. see dex.jsp
