Arizona's stretch of Route 66
is one of the most picturesque along the entire route. From volcanoes, to painted deserts
, to lush green forests, your journey provides numerous scenic photograph opportunities as well as a wealth of history, great side trips, and a volume of Route 66
In 1926, some 400 miles of Route 66 passed through Arizona, but very little of it was paved. That changed in 1933, and it was finally completed in 1938.
