The Santa Monica Pier marks the end of Route 66 highway, and anyone looking to remember their trip to the landmark can now visit a new 1,200-square-foot open-air corner space on the Santa Monica Pier devoted to the famous road.

“We’ve been looking for something completely distinctive and synonymous to the Santa Monica Pier, which is also the western terminus of historic Route 66 and embodies the public’s overwhelming nostalgia for America’s original highway,” says Jeff Klocke, Vice President at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier. “Pacific Park celebrates the Route 66 legacy with a custom Airstream that truly reflects America’s love for motor travel and the great outdoors – both of which can be found right here on the Santa Monica Pier.”

The store contains more than 200 novelty to collector items for purchase ranging from $2 to $200 that includes uniquley designed Route 66 T-shirts, handbags and shot glasses to clocks, artwork and coffe table books.

Also referred to as the “Mother Road,” Route 66 was completed in 1938 and presented travelers with an open road from Chicago to Los Angeles that offered unique mom and pop dining spots, first-of-its-kind motor lodging and one-of-a-kind roadside attractions.
