Get your (creative) kicks on Route 66-with these coloring pages!

Follow along, from Chicago to LA, as this coloring book takes you to famous sites along the 2,400-mile route. Nicknamed "the Mother Road" by John Steinbeck in The Grapes of Wrath, Route 66 is filled with history, nostalgia, and quirky roadside attractions.

An artery of transportation, an agent of social transformation, and a remnant of America's past, Route 66 was built in 1926. By the late 1930s, it wound its way from the shores of Lake Michigan, across the rolling hills of the Missouri Ozarks, through the open plains of Oklahoma, to the open ranch lands of Texas, over the enchanted mesas of New Mexico, to the Mojave Desert. It finally ended in the "land of milk and honey" on the shores of the Pacific Ocean.

Over the past century, iconic sites and kitschy images from along the Route have woven their way into the collective tapestry of America. They include:


Cadillac Ranch
Gemini Giant
The Blue Whale
The world's largest ketchup bottle
Bottle Tree Ranch
and more!


Images and sites from these iconic locations-and more-are yours to color in The Route 66 Coloring Book. With a beautifully illustrated full-color introduction and monochrome meditative patterns to color on the back of each page, this delightful coloring book features kitschy sites found nowhere else. But in addition to the roadside attractions, driving along the Route offers a deep sense of better, bygone days. It's as if the road is chronicling time gone by, and with these pages you can relax and contemplate the historic highway.

While the highway was officially decommissioned in 1985, the spirit of Route 66 lives on in the people and their stories, the sometimes-retro views and buildings, and travelers' perceptions of the highway. Whether you are a road tripper or an armchair traveler, you can still experience a remarkable journey through time on Route 66-just open these coloring pages and let your imagination roam.
