The Music of Route 66
Start: Albuquerque, New Mexico
End: Moriarty, New Mexico
Distance: 38 miles
Route 66 is the subject of countless movies and on every road trippers’ bucket list. Ride on this iconic route any day but now there is a twist on this route that you should not miss out on. A strip of the road has been made “musical” which means that a series of rumble strips near the village of Tijears, east of Albuquerque, have been calibrated in such a way that if you drive the speed limit(45 mph) , the vibrations in your car buzz to the tune of “America the Beautiful”.
Keep your eyes peeled for Route 66 Relics such as the Sunset Motel and old bars. Start your drive in Albuquerque and not anywhere else as the road plays music only if you’re driving east.
