People of all ages can still "get their kicks" from Route 66 State Park, which highlights the history and mystique of what was called the Main Street of America or the Mother Road from 1926 onward. The park is located along the original Route 66 corridor, with a 1935 roadhouse Bridgehead Inn housing the visitors' center. Displays of actual road signs and other memorabilia draw visitors into yesteryears when the route symbolized American mobility, independence and adventure. Managed by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, the park features trails for walking, bicyclists and equestrians. One side of it meets the Burlington Northern Railroad, and from the other side visitors can launch their boats into the Meramec River. For those who want to take Americana home with them, the shop at the visitors' center offers all types of Route 66 souvenirs.
