It was finished in 1926 and named Route 66. Nearly 4000 km stretched from Grant Park in Chicago to Santa Monica Boulevard in Los Angeles through three time zones and eight states - Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. The writer John Steinbeck named it 'The Mother Road' and Route 66 has always been synonymous with being on the move - towards a dream or fleeing from lost opportunities and broken promises.
Duration: 1-2 months
Route 66 has everything that the U.S. is known for. You'll find cities that never sleep, prairies as far as the eye goes and small burger joints with homemade burgers so big that there should be plenty of cold Cokes to help them get going. Not to mention the incredible nature beauty of route 66.
