Santa Monica Pier Rock, California, USA the official end and a cool start of the amazing, life changing, adventurous, Route 66

Santa Monica Pier, California, USA

The landmark is identified by a mysterious sign that showed up, perhaps as a movie prop, on the corners of Santa Monica Blvd. and Ocean Ave., and then about 50 years ago, just as mysteriously disappeared. The sign in question said “Santa Monica” above a bold “66”, under which it plainly stated, “End of the Trail.” When the pier was officially designated as the last stop for Route 66, it only made sense for a replica of the long-missing sign to be erected at the very end, looking out over the Pacific in a symbolic display of what was the destination of so many travelers over the last century.
