Route 66 begins for us! We have started our journey on the Mother Road in the style of a vintage Travelogue from the 1950s as if it’s still Route 66 during it’s heyday! We travel from Buckingham Fountain, in downtown Chicago, to The Cozy Dog in Springfield, and see as many things we can in between. We hope you have fun watching this video!
