“Road Trip 66” is the iPhone travel app that takes you along America’s Mother Road, Route 66. Featuring almost 1,800 sights — landmarks, classic attractions, diners and cafes, cool old neon signs, Mom-n-Pop motels, homemade attractions, relics of days gone by, and many more classic examples of pure Americana.
You won’t find the “typical” spots found on most travel apps – no run-of-the-mill fast food joints (unless they have a UFO or giant being on the building). Any app can give you a phonebook listing of what’s nearby. Road Trip 66 gives you the hand-picked offbeat attractions, AND the original routes, that make taking the back roads a lot more fun!
Follow the original Route 66 and its various alignments
Route 66 is no longer a single road–sadly “progress” and interstates have re-routed it multiple times. “Road Trip 66″ shows you the various routes it once followed, with landmarks all along the way. Now, you can actually follow historic Route 66 turn-by-turn on via map routes! No more pesky maps to try and re-fold. Zoom in and see the various alignments (and where to turn when it deviates) and what cool things are along the way. Perfect for Route 66 aficionados, road trippers and photographers who love to get in the car and explore!
NEW Passport – When you tap on the “Wanna go” and “Seen it” buttons on the description page, you can save your favorite spots. Automagically, your pins turn to flags, on both the map and listing!
Learn a little along the way…
Trying to decide what not to miss? Wondering what business once operated in that cool old building? Where to find a classic neon sign for the perfect photo op? Road Trip 66 has it at your fingertips. The app is updated often with new info and trivia to annoy your car mates with.
