Long Description:
The magnificent Googie Neon sign stands tall over the old Route 66 in Santa Rosa with its working neon sign.

The Sun-N-Sand is still in operation today. The sign was recently restored as part of the Route 66 renaissance.

This Website shows an artistic photo of the Historic Route 66 sign that I missed because I only took photos from the other side: (visit link) & (visit link) (scroll to end)
