Hinckley, Jim. 100 Things to Do on Route 66 Before You Die. June 27, 1985 the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials voted to decertify U.S. 66 and to remove all its highway signs. And yet iconic Route 66 is more popular and more famous than any time in its nearly 100-year history. There is an infectious magic about a Route 66 adventure. Quirky attractions, time capsule motels trimmed in colorful neon, fascinating museums and charming restaurants and diners, some owned by the same family since the 1920s, are part of the allure, but what really gives the road a vibrancy is the passionate people who preserve the road’s unique culture.
