A powerful symbol
Route 66, the legendary road that passes from California to Chicago, begins and ends right on the water. The end point is here, on the beach in Santa Monica, near Los Angeles after traveling nearly 4,000 km across eight states. The location is indicated by a road sign "66 end of trail", which you can find on the dock at Santa Monica Pier. The panel is always surrounded by tourists, because even if Route 66 no longer officially exists, it is still a powerful symbol of the United States.
