There is nothing quite like a road trip. If discovery is your thing, then this is the only way to travel, especially in the USA. Route 66 is a bit of a conundrum. This trip is not about ticking off the big showstoppers of America, this route is the showstopper. It’s about actually discovering what America is really like. Route 66 is not a tourist attraction, it is a stunning route that winds through some of the greatest landscapes in the country and visits the heart of real America.
You are going to visit towns like Duncan, Amarillo, Flagstaff and Barstow, not big-ticket names, but towns that are absolutely bursting with tradition, charm and delivering a way of life that is truly enviable. You get to experience the subtle differences in the cuisine of the different states you travel through, as well as the people and hospitality they provide. You get to experience incredible National Parks and National Monuments, and you get to do it at your pace. If there is somewhere you fall in love with, then stay there all day, there is no bus to board, no tour guide to hurry you along. Just you and the open road. The way it should be.
Covering almost half of the USA, you start off by flying into Dallas Fort Worth Airport, before heading for your first night in the charming town of Grapevine. You then pick up your car and head up into Oklahoma, to Durant, Duncan and Oklahoma City before heading back through Texas to Amarillo and then into New Mexico, to stop off in Santa Fe. You will then drive down to Albuquerque before crossing into the next state, Arizona. Here you will spend nights in Holbrook, Flagstaff and Kingman, before driving into your final State, California, where you will stop off in Barstow before driving into LA for your final nights in Santa Monica.
