Missouri Route 66 Main Page

Vintage postcard of US 66 in Missouri.

The “Show Me State” of Missouri not only has some of the most scenic views of the Mother Road, it also has dozens of vintage icons along the old highway, many of which can still be visited today.

From the Mississippi River in St. Louis, through the bluffs and rolling hills of central Missouri, to the plateau region beginning at Springfield and ending at the Kansas border, Missouri’s 300-odd-mile-journey provides a multitude of picturesque scenes along old Route 66.

Enjoy your journey through the picturesque “Show Me State”.
