WASHINGTON — The great American road trip is an adventure ingrained into the Airstream way of life. Since the first Airstreams hit the road in 1931, thousands of Airstreamers have set off to explore the captivating sights and diverse culture of the United States, traveling both the well-trod highways and remote byways.
This summer, Airstream is partnering with The National Trust for Historic Preservation in a campaign called Preserve Route 66. The campaign will celebrate the legacy of the Mother Road as it spotlights national efforts to designate Route 66 as a National Historic Trail. Achieving such a designation would make Route 66 part of a select group of historic trails, including the Oregon Trail, the Iditarod, the Lewis and Clark Trail, and the Selma to Montgomery Trail.
