The quintessential boom-and-bust highway of the American West, Route 66 once hosted a thriving array of boomtowns built around oil mines, railroad stops, cattle ranches, resorts, stagecoach stops, and gold mines.

Explore the beauty and nostalgia of these abandoned communities along America’s favorite highway!
