Along 66: September 2017: Foreign 66 Travelers and a Sign
These are from the Route 66 News site. I just pick the stories I'm most interested in to write about in this blog. There are many other entries and much more information at the site.
SEPTEMBER 21-- Is Route 66 immune from the international slump? Foreign travel in the United States is down in the first quarter of 2017, but two Route 66 landmarks that keep visitor records show stable or increased numbers. One of them is the Route 66 Hall of Fame and Museum in Pontiac.
We ran into several foreign visitors during our last month's 66 on 66 Cruise.
SEPTEMBER 23-- Tucumcari Motel sign emerges from the ashes. The motel was destroyed by a suspected arson, but the sign was 20 feet from the building and not damaged. But someone carted it off, but it was recovered and the New Mexico Rt. 66 Museum has the newly restored sign.
Always good news.
