Walking the History of Arizona's Route 66

By August 16, 2006

Follow me on:

Since I don't have a classic car from the Route 66 era, and the weather is much too chilly to drive along Route 66 with the top down, I opted for walking the Route 66 10K walk hosted by a local AVA (non-competitive walking) club. I found out that if you slow down and take things one step at a time you will certainly see more. Often the history of a place is evident in the details. As I walked downtown Flagstaff, I was able to read the historic plaques on Route 66 buildings and stop and marvel at some of the old business signs. The Museum Club, whose sign is pictured here, has been a Route 66 roadhouse for many a decade and still brings in the customers with their live music and bar food. And, as any good roadhouse should be, it is a ways out of town... out east on Route 66.
