California and Route 66
From the demanding Mojave Desert, over mountains and through lush inland valleys, to the golden beaches of lively Santa Monica and the sparkling Pacific Ocean, Route 66 passes through every type of Southern California landscape. The old road, which survives intact almost all the way across the state is marked for most of its 315 miles by signs declaring it Historic Route 66. Across the Mojave Desert the route is also marked as the National Old Trails Highway. Route 66 ends at the famous historic pier in Santa Monica.
