Get your kicks on Route 66

Labor Day is traditionally a driving holiday for Americans. Over the long weekend people take to their cars to feel the wind in their hair and get one last glimpse of the great outdoors. Route 66 has long been known as America’s nostalgic highway. It even showed up in the Disney movie Cars last summer. Now Google Maps has made it possible for you not only to chart a road trip on Route 66, but they also share photos and interviews from their own driving adventures.

Run and sightsee all at once

Not a fan of the sightseeing tour buses most cities have to offer? Now there’s a great alternative. If you want to exercise and see a new city at the same time you should check out City Running Tours. Currently available in New York, Washington, D.C. and Chicago, hopefully they will expand to other cities soon. They got a great write up in today.
