With more than 100+ pages on our popular, ten-year-old Route 66 Chamber of Commerce website, it has become the largest Route 66 website in the world! We provide our visitors with information that helps them plan their adventure on the Historic Mother Road of America, and today, over two million hits have been recorded!

Route 66 is 91 years old this year, and most of it between Chicago and California is still in good drivable condition, with many of the old attractions, dining and lodging facilities having been restored or preserved. It's the "Real" America! It's also known worldwide as "America's Longest Attraction", and a Roadtrip on Route 66 is an unforgettable adventure for the whole family!
In addition to promoting Travel and Commerce along Historic Route 66 that benefits it's thousands of businesses, we publish links to Route 66 Events, Activities and Special Interest Happenings...and much more.

The Route 66 Chamber of Commerce works with a local sign company that is located on Route 66, and we will be posting examples of 'affordable' signs that you can use outdoors or in.

If there is a critical turn that is not signed, let me know and I can have one custom made in the colors you wish. I can also send you the vinyl sign that can be applied to any hard surface.

'Signing the Route' is the best thing you can do for our visitors! Go to SignTheRoute.Homestead.com for the history of Route 66 Signage .
Chamber Signs we have used for 10 years!
