Description
									The United States is home to a highway that has captured imaginations for nearly a century. This mythical route is part of American folklore, even of the great American dream. Its name is Route 66!

This stretch of road, originally established in 1926, crosses eight states over almost 4,000 kilometers and connects Chicago, Illinois, to Santa Monica, California. Over its lifetime, Route 66 has seen it all: first it was a symbol of hope and prosperity, and then it was forgotten when the superhighways were built.

However, new life has been breathed into Route 66 by nostalgia buffs who want to experience this historic crossing or to simply discover the beauty of the American kitsch that still lines a road that has become an open-air museum.
