From glittering city skylines to dusty cowboy towns and sacred Native American lands, Route 66 has it all. Get your kicks on the trip of a lifetime…
We’re offering you a 14-night Route 66 road trip including flights, accommodation and car hire from just £1499pp!
Stuck for summer holiday ideas? How about eight states in two weeks? As one of the most famous highways in the world, Route 66 has become a symbol of American culture, winding 2448 miles from Chicago to Los Angeles. If you’ve always dreamt of hitting the road Kerouac-style but don’t know where to start, we’ve arranged it all for you: return flights, accommodation in 11 hotels, car hire, the lot!
Departing from Gatwick, Heathrow or Manchester (with US Airlines, American Airlines or British Airways), you’ll arrive in captivating Chicago, where you can stroll the shores of Lake Michigan or dine along the city waterfront. Your next destination is Missouri’s St Louis, known as the Gateway to the West and famed for its rich jazz and blues heritage. No visit to Missouri would be complete without a trip to Springfield, a colourful city known as the birthplace of Route 66. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a Western once you reach Oklahoma City (Oklahoma) and Amarillo (Texas), spending a night in each among cowboys and canyons, with the chance to visit the world-famous Cadillac Ranch before heading New Mexico way. The neon motel signs of Tucumcari will illuminate your drive into the Gateway to New Mexico, where unrivalled vistas of mountains peaks and monuments have made it the setting of several Westerns. En-route to Albuquerque, you’ll pass Native American pueblos, with the chance to visit the communities of New Mexico before reaching one of the oldest cities in the USA.
Back on the road, The Grand Canyon State awaits: Arizona. You’ll spend a night in Chinle, located at the entrance to the Canyon de Chelly National Monument, which is home to around 40 Navajo Indian families. The canyon’s towering summits and vast spaces will do little to prepare you for the scale of its big sister the Grand Canyon, a 6000ft deep gorge carved by the Colorado River. Once you’ve taken in its grandeur, it’s time to experience splendour of a more decadent kind in the original Sin City, Las Vegas. Staying two nights at the Flamingo hotel, a casino and resort set on the famous four corners of Las Vegas Boulevard and boasting a 15-acre Caribbean-style water playground, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to relax at the spa or sip on island-inspired cocktails before experiencing the glitz of the Strip. But the party isn’t over yet: your final stop in the Sunshine State is none other than Los Angeles. The dazzling metropolis is packed with activities, from celebrity spotting on Hollywood Boulevard to people watching at Venice Beach - the perfect end to your stateside trip.
