Everything else in Texas might be absurdly big, but the state's share of the famous Route 66 is tiny. Nonetheless, visitors will find plenty of kicks on (and near) Old 66, and plenty of diversions, too, of another sort -- the old roadbed literally disappears at times, forcing travelers onto its more efficient but far less endearing successor, Interstate 40. Despite having become one of the choppier stretches of the celebrated highway, a few delightful enterprises still manage to eke out a living from passersby, including a Route 66 museum, making for quite a memorable trip down memory lane.
