Route 66 In California
- The road ran from Chicago, Illinois, to Santa Monica, California, for 2,448 miles.
- A plaque in Santa Monica dedicates the highway to famed humorist Will Rogers, and the road’s official name was the Will Rogers Highway. Today it is better known as The Mother Road, a name given to it by author John Steinbeck.
- Its final mile was paved in 1938, and it was removed from the U.S. highway system in 1985.
- Route 66 ran for 315 miles through California; this photo shows a portion of the road in the Mojave Desert.
- “(Get Your Kicks On) Route 66” first became a hit tune in 1946, sung by Nat King Cole.
