California Route 66 Destinations - Historic and Modern

Route 66 passes through every type of Southern California landscape. Route 66 survives intact almost all the way across the state and is marked for most of its 315 miles by signs declaring it Historic Route 66. From the Mojave Desert, through the citrus-rich valleys and over mountains to Santa Monica and the ocean, Route 66 in California is a road-trip with lots to see and do. It is the road-trip of a lifetime.

In 1926 when Route 66 was officially designated, the road was identified from Chicago to Los Angeles. In 1936 the road was extended from Sunset Blvd to Santa Monica Blvd. to Lincoln and ended at Pacific Coast Highway. The famed Santa Monica Pier a landmark since 1909 brings the city the joy and nostalgia of the turn of the century.
