Route 66


A road trip of a lifetime on the

most famous road in the world

Route 66 Road Trip

Chicago, Kansas, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. The famous road offers plenty of experiences stretching across the country.
A new, larger, and more modern road has replaced the legendary road that once was one of the country’s major transport routes. However, that does not mean that Route 66 has gone into oblivion. The road has its own nostalgic character with old diners and gas stations, and is worth a visit when you are on the road in the United States.

Route 66

Many people associate Route 66 with the good old USA. There is no doubt that Route 66 is America’s most famous road, and the former main road is also one of the symbols of the United States. Route 66 starts in Chicago in the northeastern United States and ends in Los Angeles, located in the southwestern part. Route 66 is known as ‘The Mother Road’ because Route 66 helped to create much of the U.S. driving culture we know today.

Choosing the car

When you imagine a car in the U.S. you imagine a classic American car with lots of horsepower like a Mustang, Chrysler or similar whizzing through Route 66’s landscape. When driving on Route 66, you will find many of the things that has always been associated with the classic USA: Small motels, cafes with milkshakes, burger bars, motorcycle shops and drive-in theaters. A road-trip through Route 66 is a great insight into the real American culture.

The tour starts in Chicago

Route 66 was founded in Chicago, located in the state of Illinois. Chicago is America’s third largest city with 2.9 million residents in the downtown area. In Chicago, you will find many impressive skyscrapers and a living city that serves as the epicenter of the U.S. economy. Chicago is an incredibly influential city, and you should take the time to walk around Chicago and experience a real American metropolis with all that it entails – many experiences.

Missouri and Kansas City

After Illinois and Chicago you arrive to Missouri. Missouri is one of the states that played the greatest role during the American Civil War. The largest city in Missouri is Kansas City. Kansas City is located in the state of Kansas and Missouri, and has had a major impact on the U.S. car industry. In Kansas City  you can see major automobile giants such as General Motors facilities and learn about their history. If you drive through Kansas City, located in Missouri, you will automatically advance to the State of Kansas. Route 66 only very briefly touches in Kansas, but it should still be possible to enjoy the beautiful scenery, which you can see on both sides.

Oklahoma

Route 66 runs right through Oklahoma. In Oklahoma, you will not only find big cities – you can also see some of America’s most beautiful nature with dense mountain ranges, large prairies, and woodlands that attract lightning storms like no other. In Oklahoma, you will find Navajo Indian Reservations. Oklahoma has a long and impressive Native American history. You can see and experience the Indian history in many of the cities you drive through via Route 66.

Texas

You also get to experience North Texas when you drive on Route 66. Texas is an all-American state with cities like Houston and Dallas. The term ‘the wild west’ is rooted in Texas’ history, where Native Americans in the late 19th century were expelled by force. Texas is known for many things: John F. Kennedy was shot in Dallas, George W. Bush senior was governor of the state before he was president, and it is also in Texas that the controversial death penalty is used most. If you want to experience the real Wild West, you have a great opportunity while driving on Route 66.

New Mexico

New Mexico is located west of Texas. Much of New Mexico is desert – the very same desert where the first atomic bomb was tested in 1945. A bomb, which was developed in New Mexico. Due to the desert landscape, you really get to experience “the real” Route 66 in New Mexico. Long, endless roads with small towns – exactly what tourists are looking for on a Route 66 road-trip. The second to last State that Route 66 leads through is Arizona. If you take a small detour from Route 66 you can see the Grand Canyon. While driving on Route 66 this is a must see. While in Arizona we recommend that you take detours. Otherwise, it is possible to experience a lot of Route 66 nostalgia in Arizona, with old signs, small towns, old cafes and Meteor Crater. Meteor Crater is where a meteor landed thousands of years ago and created a crater measuring one mile from side to side.

Los Angeles

Los Angeles is where the tour ends, and the iconic city is a worthy exit on a fantastic journey on Route 66. Los Angeles is located in the state of California, where you can find many of America’s most famous sights, including the Hollywood Sign, Napa Valley, Yosemite National Park, and San Francisco.

Experience of a lifetime

A road-trip on Route 66 is an experience you cannot get elsewhere. It is a trip through the American self-understanding and a trip where friends for life are made. USATours’ travel consultants can help you plan your trip to Route 66, whether you want to take the chronological trip, or whether you want a few detours. Are you ready for the road trip of your life?
