Chicago to LA driving route 66

I want to take the historic drive from Chicago to LA via Route 66. I know that 66 doesn't go completely through, but would like to stay on it as much as possible. An itinerary would be most helpful!

Chicago (Illinois) Los Angeles (California)

The official National Park Service website has a printable map of route 66 (right-click to open it in a new tab then click to enlarge it) and links to a zoomable interactive map. Both will help massively with working out your itinerary :
It also lists places of historic interest on route 66 in each state:
The site linked below has individual state maps of route 66 (historical route as well as modern version) plus a list of major places it passes through in each state:
In essence you'll travel ChicagoSpringfield (Illinois) > St Louis > Baxter Springs (Kansas) >Tulsa >Oklahoma City > Amarillo  > Albuquerque >FlagstaffSan Bernardino >Los AngelesSanta Monica
Enjoy your planning! :-)
