Ideas For Your Escapades!
Stick to Route 66 or make a detour to the Sturgis Rally and why not raise money along the way?
Route 66 is one of the original US highways, established in 1926.
It runs from Chicago (Illinois) to Los Angeles, passing through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.
The route is 2,448 miles long.
Make your own plans and create your own itinerary or join a guided tour for all or part of the journey. We work closely with H-C Travel who will be able to assist those of you who like to have the reassurance of having accomodation pre-arranged.
