News From Along Route 66, February 2017: Tips for Route 66 Tourism Success-- Part 1

FEBRUARY 12, 2017  How to parley Route 66 heritage into tourism dollars, which undoubtedly will continue to grow as we approach the 100th anniversary of the Mother Road.

**  Don't just preserve it, use it to generate tourism dollars.

**  Anything dating to the road's golden days, 1940s to 1960s, should be restored, renovated or some other use found for it.

**  Having festivals is good for the economy.

I am glad that Bloomington-Normal, Illinois, have finally figured out they have a nice bit of Route 66 heritage and I probably won't always drive around them on I-55.
