As of yesterday, the old historic Route 66 turned 89. The road from Califonia to Chicago has been around for many generations, eras and wars and so many people celebrate and work along the Route to keep it alive.
Tourists from all over the world enjoy traveling Route 66.
According to the fourstateshomepage.com, “We see anywhere from 10 to 15,000 a year that come through here of all parts of the international realm. I mean, even we start seeing an increase in China and Japan in the last couple of years,” said Patrick Tuttle, Joplin CVB.
