We Discover the Hidden Treasures of Route 66

Amy Bizzarri, author of the new book, The Best Hits on Route 66, 100 Essential Stops on the Mother Road" takes us on a trip from Chicago to the Santa Monica Pier, across America to discover the history, the culture, the food, the people and the spirit of this country's most cherished highway.
    Stops include the Blue Hole in New Mexico, a little known desert oasis, and a road that play a tune but only when you drive the speed limit. 

   The portion of Route 66 in Tijeras, New Mexico that allows your car to play America The Beautiful but only if you drive over the rumble strips at the 45 mph speed limit.
