Route 66 Highway Tour - Carthage

One of the first concrete-paved portions of Missouri's highway system was the stretch of road west of Carthage to Joplin, laid in 1920. In 1926, this route became part of Route 66.

Along the route today you find Kellogg Lake, Powers Museum, Carthage Municipal Park, Stone's Throw Dinner Theatre, 66 Drive-In and the 1939 Boots Motel.

This is a step-on bus tour.
