For an enjoyable trip … go 60!

What a beauty of a brochure produced by the National Highway 60 Association. This transcontinental highway stretched from Virginia Beach to Los Angeles. Check out this 1954 map and guide, which not only displayed many fine establishments along U.S. 60, but also was an invitation for everyone to attend the upcoming Highway 60 convention in Poplar Bluff, Mo.

The inside of the guidebook has motels, cafes, gas stations and scenic stops along the way. This page shows the wide assortment of things to interest the motorist – from trading posts to fishing to fine hotels. A short stretch of 60 shared the road with Route 66 in northeastern Oklahoma.
