This mile-long stretch of road originally belonging to Route 66, now features shops, clubs and restaurants. Favorites include the Nat Ballroom, currently an antiques store, but a former stop for the Big Bands that passed through Amarillo, and the Golden Light Café, where the best hamburgers in town have been served for more than 50 years.

We had a family reunion at Wild Bill's Fillin' Station and everybody had a blast - good food, shaded seating and friendly folks.

Try to imagine what this road was like 30-40 years ago. Still live the nostalgic feel even though nany places havent been open in years. American history...you have to drive it once.

This is an area to really dig into. I am an architecture buff and this area of buildings contains a lot of treats. It's really worth spending a day walking it and looking it over. Be sure to include the Natatorium.

Our family loved taking little excursions along 66. They got to see the landmarks that inspired Radiator Springs. I loved the nostalgic art deco buildings and 50's vibe. Please go out of your way to support the businesses along 66 so they can stay in...More

What a way to get off the beaten path. Each town had it's own character. I used mapquest in order to get a rundown of each place before I got off the I interstate.

Bar and BBB!Q place ok. Not much else to see but the bars and some restaurants. Antiquing is ok though.

Not a lot to see. Many of the stores were closed or boarded up. We expected to see more stores and shops. Best part was lunch at Silver Spoon
