18 Apr 2023

Route 66 is one of the most famous and iconic roads in the world, known for its rich history and stunning scenery. It is the ultimate road trip destination for anyone looking to experience the Wild West and the nostalgia of a bygone era. Driving on Route 66 takes you back in time to the 1950s and the heyday of American road culture.

Starting from Chicago, Illinois, and ending in Santa Monica, California, Route 66 spans over 2,400 miles, crossing eight states and three time zones. The road passes through the heart of the United States and takes you on a journey through some of the most spectacular landscapes, from the rolling hills of the Midwest to the desert plains of the Southwest.

One of the highlights of the trip is the 191 turns on the curvy roads of Route 66, which offer an adrenaline-fueled driving experience. As you wind your way through the twists and turns, you'll feel like you're on a roller coaster, with breathtaking views of the surrounding scenery.

Along the way, we visited the main tourist landmarks from Arizona to Nevada. One of the most unforgettable stops was the cowboy village, where we had the chance to experience life as a cowboy in the Wild West. We saw a live rodeo, tried our hand at lassoing, and learned about the history of the American West.

Another must-see attraction on Route 66 is the Grand Canyon, one of the world's most spectacular natural wonders. The canyon is over 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide, and over a mile deep, offering breathtaking views and photo opportunities. We also visited the Petrified Forest National Park and the Meteor Crater, both of which were awe-inspiring.

As we crossed the state line into California, we made our way to Los Angeles, the final stop on our Route 66 adventure. We spent a few days exploring the city, taking in the sights and sounds of Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and the Santa Monica Pier. The neon lights of Las Vegas were the perfect end to an epic road trip.

Route 66 is not just a road trip; it's a journey through history and Americana. The road has been immortalized in countless movies, books, and songs, making it a cultural icon that is known around the world. Driving on Route 66 is a bucket list experience that should be on everyone's travel itinerary. It's a road trip that you will never forget and an adventure that you will cherish for a lifetime.
