McDonald's & Route 66 Museum
The McDonald's & Route 66 Museum, in San Bernardino, is the site of the first McDonald's restaurant. Brothers Dick and Maurice McDonald first opened the restaurant in 1948, selling hamburgers for 15 cents and french fries for 10 cents. Ray Kroc was successful in franchising the McDonald's restaurants and bought out the McDonald brothers in 1961.
In 1962, Ray Kroc opened a McDonald's restaurant a block from the original restaurant, which forced the McDonald brother's restaurant to close. Visitors to the original restaurant today will see a Route 66 Museum with a variety of Route 66 memorabilia and historical McDonald's items. Stay with Best Western, while in the Los Angeles area for comfortable accommodations and superior guest services.
