For the road trippers, then you simply can’t miss the once of a lifetime experience driving along the Route 66. We did it and had a blast! We saw all the famous landmarks, chowed down some of the most delicious southern American food, we slept in a Wigwam and also a vibrating bed, and we kept on driving. After driving nearly 2,400 miles (3942 kilometres) on the most legendary road of the continent, we finally conquered this bigger than Ben Hur road trip that left us lots of unforgettable memories.
Realistically, you need at least two weeks to complete the whole journey from Chicago all the way to California; we managed to complete the course in ten days with a hire car but by really pushing our luck with lots of driving each day. If you’re on a gunshot road trip like us, then you might like to find out a few of my highlights along this legendary historic road that you don’t want to miss.
