Route 66 has gained a reputation as the United States of America’s most famous road. How did that happen, and why does it still matter? As the above video shows, there are a lot of reasons.
In this episode of Vox Almanac, Vox’s Phil Edwards explores the history of the road and the textures of its present, from the road itself to the roadside attractions along the way to the people who enjoy its diversions and those who help maintain them. It reveals a road that’s changed a lot over the decades but remains vital in unexpected ways.
