Route 66 Official Patrol Badge story in the box:
Route 66 (a.k.a. “The Mother Road" and "Main Street of America") was viewed as the road to opportunity throughout the first half of the 1900’s. Established in 1926 this 2,448 mile highway starts in Chicago, IL and ends in Santa Monica, CA. It runs through 8 states - Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. It was the only road to connect small towns with large metropolitan cities. Route 66 ushered in the development of tourism, as it was one of the original sites for motels, filling stations, and motor courts. In 1946, Nat King Cole released “Get Your Kicks On Route 66”, creating a slogan for the American motorist.
