    Route 66 Adventure Handbook

    Have reviewed the book and feel that it will be very helpful in planning
    our trip. It highlights all the towns along the way (big @ small) which was very informative. Being set up by state and driving order will help us find those offbeat roadside attractions, side trips and other wonders that are unique to Route 66. I like the idea of pointing out each attraction and where they are located. It also gives a little history of Route 66 and each of the towns. The information was concise enough and easy to find; that it will be useful as a travel guide to take along. It evens tells you how to start the trip.

    Truly an Adventure!

    I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone planning to travel along route 66. We enjoyed reading each chapter as we came upon the towns described in this book. Very well written, we enjoyed photographing the same pictures that were included in the volume. We had a wonderful two week adventure using the suggestions and sites in this book. Highly recommend.
