Route 66 — Santa Monica Blvd
There was a time that you could drive from the Ocean all the way to Chicago, Illinois, or vice-versa. Basically, the starting point of the route 66 is Chicago, and ends at the Ocean at the Santa Monica Pier.
Today, however, the US 66 you are no longer able to drive it uninterrupted all the way from Chicago to Los Angeles. However, with careful planning, the original and alternate routes are still drivable. Some stretches are quite well preserved, including one between Springfield, Missouri, and Tulsa, Oklahoma.
