Route 66

It’s Wednesday, which means all of you readers probably need something fun to see.  Here are two photographs from Route 66* – a travel day for you, on my favorite road.  The drive-in theater is just outside of Carthage, Missouri, still in operation and quite the sight.

Note that this is one of the very few remaining drive-in theaters in operation on Route 66 today.  See a list of all open and closed 66 drive-ins.  Go see one while you can! The (literal) road sign was taken in on “Old Route 66” that leads drivers through the tiny section from Missouri to Kansas.
