A lot of nostalgia for those of us who grew up living on and driving on this highway.

Great quiz. I drove the whole route in 2017, a great experience. I remember all these places.

Sounds cool! But I thought there were portions of the route that no longer exist??

Some of the parts of the route have been incorporated into Interstate 40 and some go through business districts. At least that's how it is from Amarillo to Barstow-ish.

Hmm... I don't think this is the list sung by Nat King Cole.

That confused me for quite awhile, I kept guessing all the cities from the song.

Bloomington-Normal is generally considered one area. I've never seen them listed separately.

They are two independent incorporated cities. As this quiz uses city proper populations, it wouldn't make sense to not include them both.

I missed the 4 least guessed answers. Never even heard of the bottom one. My cousin and I drove along portions of historic route 66 when I was moving back east from California, though we started in Sacramento, then detoured through San Francisco, Yosemite, Death Valley, Las Vegas, and the Grand Canyon before going along I-40 most of the way. Picked up I-88 after Knoxville and went toward DC. We stopped in or passed through Flagstaff, Albuquerque, Amarillo, and Oklahoma City. Overall much more enjoyable than the drive out when we passed by Chicago and stayed on I-80 west most of the trip - the midwest states along this route were brutally boring.

I got 14 out of 15. I wasn't alive during Route 66's heyday, but I live in Illinois which helps with the smaller city names there.

Using Joplin as a threshold there are a lot of California suburbs that should be on this list. Pasadena, Upland, Rancho Cucamonga, Fontana, Rialto, Hesperia, and Victorville all clock in with higher populations. ...and Arcadia, depending on if you want to use the 2010 census or the 2018 estimate
