Route 66 by State
Historic Route 66 passes briefly through the State of Kansas on its was between Joplin, Missouri and Miami, Oklahoma. Although Kansas has the shortest stretch of the popular old route between Chicago, Illinois and Los Angeles, California, the 13 miles of Route 66 in Kansas are among the best preserved and have many attractions.
But, don’t for a moment, discount this brief journey, as in these few short miles, there is more of the Route 66 experience than any other dozen miles on the Mother Road. This brief stretch of the road also provides a peek at Civil War history, the Old West, and the mining days of the tri-state area.
