Route 66: Chicago to Arizona. There's probably no more recognizable highway in America than Route 66. It was one of the original roadways that ran all the way from Chicago to Los Angeles, but has since been replaced by the Interstate Highway System.

Then continue west on Interstate 70 where you'll pass through Kansas mining towns.
