The Mother Road in Albuquerque stretched from Tijeras Pass on the east side all the way along Central Avenue to Nine Mill Hill on the west side of town, guiding motorists past the Art Deco-era buildings of Nob Hill, the Pueblo Revival-style University of New Mexico, downtown, and historic Old Town.
Established in the year 1926, this iconic highway stretched for 2,448 total miles, serving as a link between the two thriving cities of Chicago and Los Angeles. Dust Bowl migrants used this road to head west in the 1930s; it’s also been mentioned in notable works of music and literature as well.
Albuquerque still retains a number of Route 66-era buildings and landmarks, as well as more modern Route 66 businesses such as the 66 Diner and the Absolutely Neon Art Gallery & Studio. Take a tour on the ABQ Trolley for Route 66 highlights and cruise the road after dark, with neon signs lighting the way. This road should definitely be on any adventurer’s bucket list, so make plans to visit today!
