US Route 66
Historic neon signs still glow on old Route 66 through Albuquerque, which is now Central Avenue. Alongside the vintage signs, you’ll see new versions put up by businesses that are continuing the aesthetic traditions of old Route 66, adorning their shops with bright, buzzing neon. The famous Route 66 continues to guide visitors through Albuquerque, New Mexico (NM); from the volcanoes on the city’s far west side past cheap iconic motels, through historic Old Town and the Downtown business district, and continuing eastward through the University of New Mexico and the trendy Nob Hill area.
The Rio Grande Inn is .6 miles or a ten minute walk from Historic Route 66.
