The signs include a few that are still standing although the lot is completely empty of the building it went with, such as the Zia Motor Lodge.
There are a lot of unique shops along the road, too, including the Birdland Hippy Store.
I was excited to get a picture of my first muffler man! I'm not sure what Paul Bunyan has to do with Vietnamese food, but do I care? Nope. I hope to see many more muffler men in the future (and Mike doesn't even get jealous of me wanting to see these other men!).
The Route 66 Diner is a popular place to eat, but as you can imagine it's not vegan friendly. Besides, we weren't going to give our money to non-vegan restaurants when there were so many great vegan ones around! However, we did stop by the diner's parking lot to get a picture of the sign collage.
Many of the building murals I posted about a few days ago were along Route 66. There were many more that I didn't get pictures of. They were all very impressive!
This was one of my favorites.
We have another vacation coming up in July and we're hoping to take a full day to visit at least part of Route 66 in Illinois. Until then, we hope you enjoyed this tour of Albuquerque's Route 66!
