Just to add my experience. I was out in New Mexico on a bike trip a few years ago and was desperately looking for a way to get off of the freeway (I-40 I believe). Anyway, I found a sign that said US-66 so I took it west. In a couple of miles it turned into a dirt road. Needless to say I went back to the freeway. I think it would be an interesting trip but I suggest doing your homework first. Good luck.

A large portion of the old hwy has been incorporated into the new interstate highways. Parts of it are still intact here and there, but are very bumpy or turn into dead ends where old bridges no longer exist. Arizona has about the most parts of the highway still intact. They are secondary highways west of Flagstaff. Some parts of the old highway are now the main streets of towns. Many are only a shadow of their former selves when the main highway went through towns. Kind of sad really to see a page of history that has more or less closed. The tourist help keep it alive.

Springfield MO has a couple attractions geared towards Route 66

Coming that way, worth stopping

Overall you better have a destination in mind and take some other side trips as it is a long way across

Kingman Az, where 66 passed through town, still promotes a bunch of touristy stuff for folks to do around town. huge section between the cali border and Williams Az that you can stop and see the touristy stuff. Big moho friendly.... A couple of museums in town, one is called the Powerhouse has good parking and the down town section is pretty much all original as when the 66 was in it's hayday... a day trip to Oatman Az to see the donkeys, is better done in a car due to the twisty turny road that runs over the hill.
