Cruise into Albuquerque and explore the Southwest in style from one of America’s most iconic highways. Historic Route 66 spans 2,448 miles between Chicago and Los Angeles. One of the highway’s first ... Read more
legs ran through Albuquerque where more than 500 miles of unpaved road linked California and New Mexico. Albuquerque came of age during the route’s heyday, as evidenced by the colorful and well-preserved neon signs that denote Route 66’s journey through the city, past volcanoes, the Rio Grande Botanical Garden, the aquarium and Albuquerque’s retail and educational hubs. Though Interstate 40 has replaced much of the original roadbed, many sections are still intact alongside.

The segment of Historic Route 66 that bisects the City of Albuquerque is the longest urban segment remaining of the famous 'Mother Road" Visitors come from all over the planet to experience some of the remnant of the era when neon lighing and automobiles were king,

I believe this is the Nob Hill check-in. Do not bother going here. Crappy area and creepy people cruising the street. As a woman walking alone there in the daytime I was very uncomfortable.

Rte 66 runs all through Albuquerque. Down Central you will see a lot of old Motels with retro/original signage. The nearby Route 66 diner is a fun place to step into a blast from the past.

If you're looking for a lovingly nostalgic glimpse into America's car cruising history, look no further than Albuquerque's segment of the historic Route 66. Visitors will find vintage car museums, old fashioned diners and pit stops, neon sign vendors and, depending on the time of year, festivals or parades with hundreds of antique cars and thousands of happy onlookers.

U.S. Route 66 (US 66 or Route 66), also known as the Will Rogers Highway and colloquially known as the Main Street of America or the Mother Road, was one of the original highways within the U.S. Highway System. Route 66 was established on November 11, 1926—with road signs erected the following year.[2] The highway, which became one of the most famous roads in America, originally ran from Chicago, Illinois, through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona before ending at Los Angeles, California, covering a total of 2,448 miles (3,940 km).[3] It was recognized in popular culture by both a hit song and the Route 66 television show in the 1960s.

When we were stationed in CA I remember traveling this highway when it wasn't finished built to vist with our relatives in Texas and Arkansas,. Brings back so many good memories; traveled it thriugh Ariaona and New Mexico. I remember being enchanted with the Indians, where some lived, how they lived...just the history of the people and their culture. Am blessed to have traveled this route especially in the 1950-'60,s.

When I was a teenager I went on a boy scout trip to Philmont Scout Ranch and we traveled mostly on Route 66. Well going back now there is not much of the road left but in Albuquerque they have a section with the old type restaurants and everything. We even stopped to eat at one of these establishments from the past - it was great.
