Myths about Route 66: #2 Route 66 cannot be completed as one whole trip and it’s just made up of dead ends
When I talked about Route 66 to people from different European countries, I was shocked by the myths and inaccurate information I learned during the conversations. Route 66 needs to be discussed much more and so I have decided to explain and even debunk some of these myths in this book. Let's explain the myth #2!
This is false as well. Route 66 is a comprehensive route linking Chicago and Santa Monica. It is made up of many historical sections and various alternative routes, but it is a road that takes you farther every day.
During its 60 years of existence, Route 66 has had many sections and its shape has been constantly changing. That is why you can find dead ends with either a closed or washed away bridge, a fence to a private land, or a hard-to-drive dusty road. But these are considered places you can but don’t have to see.
