Take a trip across the country and back in time and discover the America of years gone by on the historic Route 66. Called the Main Street of America, it linked East and West for nearly 60 memorable years and became part of our national folklore in the process. Nearly 2500 miles of roadside diners, small towns, tepee-shaped motels and frozen custard stands helped thread the fabric of America and saw many a journeyman and a dreamer travel its storied path west in fulfillment of his hopes for glory and prosperity. Now, discover Route 66 like never before in this 5-disc collection of all the nostalgia and kitsch that made it a piece of Americana. See the road, hear the stories and take the journey along the Mother Road from its starting point in Chicago until it hits the ocean in L.A.
The road may be no more but its legend lives on in every mile of trail that still exists. Route 66: The Marathon Tour covers the journey in six hours of lively, fun-filled stories and anecdotes that will make you want to take the trip again and again! Immortalized in American pop culture in song and in literature, John Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath was based on the iconic trail and Bobby Troup’s “Route 66” was inspired by the jazzman’s trip down the cross-country byway. With tons of bonus features including rare photos and a profile of the Corvette, another American classic, Route 66: The Marathon Tour is one ride you’ll never forget. So fasten your seatbelt, hold on tight and like the song says, “Get your kicks on Route 66!”
