Texas Route 66 Main Page

Texas Postcard

Greetings from Texas Postcard. Available at Legends’ General Store.

The stretch of Texas Route 66 provides several vintage Mother Road icons as you travel across the “Staked Plains” of the Texas Panhandle and glimpses of the Wild Wild West.

Closely following Interstate 40, more than 150 miles of the original 178 miles of the old road remain. The only sections of original Route 66 not available are between Jericho and Alanreed and Adrian to Glenrio. Otherwise, Route 66 still exists even with original concrete paving in many spots.

Enjoy the journey across the Lone Star State.

The sun has riz,
The sun has set,
And here we is
In Texas yet.
