Route 66 Fun Fact – The Great Depression Paved Route 66.
This is the first of many posts in relation to Route 66 and I have no idea how many there will be, but let’s see what happens!!
Firstly, I have to say, everyone should at least try a Road Trip once in their life whether it be Route 66 or across Ireland but it is a must do!!! I would recommend you go with at least one person who you can honestly spend almost every waking moment with. I was blessed to have a friend who was in a position to embark on this trip with me and I couldn’t have asked for a better person.
That is right over 10 days we drove 3268 miles from Chicago right across to Los Angeles!
We passed through the following places:
- St. Louis
- Five Mile
- Oklahoma City
- Cadillac Ranch
- Santa Rosa
- Santa Fe
- Petrified Forest National Park
- Meteor Crater
- Grand Canyon
- Las Vegas (Not part of Route 66)
- Los Angeles
- Santa Monica
As you can tell as we came towards the end of the route we didn’t stop as much as we wanted. There is so much you can do in 10 days before you pass out from exhaustion.
The Big Questions
Would I go back? Yes
Why? There’s probably more we could have done and would love to do it again.
