Much to see in Amarillo

Eastbound U.S. 66 created a grand commercial strip through this panhandle city in Texas. Just look at all the highway icons in this early 1960s photo: a Mobil gas pegasus, a looming Holiday Inn sign, a Rexall drug store, even a car hauling a gorgeous travel trailer. Stop for gas (29 cents a gallon), pick up some ice and be on your way.

How about a stay at the Redwood Motel or the True Rest Motel? Lodging establishments stood shoulder to shoulder with service stations and cafes, hoping to be noticed along this stretch of Route 66.
