Route 66 News

An overview of the western ends of Route 66

Justin Scarred of Randomland Adventures is a blabbermouth, but the surprisingly well-informed host explains the various western ends of Route 66 — downtown Los Angeles, Olympic and Lincoln boulevards in Santa Monica and, finally, the traditional end at the Santa Monica Pier.

A bit of news: A Mel’s Drive-In at Lincoln and Olympic in Santa Monica is being built there and is scheduled to reopen this summer.

With that news, the otherwise-boring western end of Route 66 soon will become a bit more interesting.

    I live a block from Route 66 here in Santa Monica. Just got home from a walk to the pier. It’s cool to be so close to history.
