June 8, 2024 - Day 1

After our morning flight west, we will arrive in Los Angeles and begin our journey - at “the end” of Route 66 to the west at Santa Monica Pier on the Pacific Ocean. After enjoying lunch and browsing, we begin east along the old route with our overnight in Pasadena, CA.

June 9, 2024 - Day 2

After breakfast, we begin crusin’ on 66 with our first stop at Elmer’s Bottle Tree Ranch on 66. The love of one man created this unique pit stop featuring many tree-shaped sculptures made from glass bottles & vintage items. Here we find one of the most photographed spots on the route - Roy’s Café, Motel and Gas Station. Today, the closed site has been restored in patch work throughout the years to keep it standing in the Mojave Desert sun. Just across the state line into Arizona, we will have dinner out and spend the night in famous Kingman, AZ. right on the old route!

June 10, 2024 - Day 3

As we begin our expediton east, we are going to a favorite along the old route... “Cool Springs Station”. Located on a portion of the old road literally in the “middle of nowhere” up the Gold Hill Grade near Oatman, AZ. This amazing hand built stoned station has a new lease on life for “66” travelers to enjoy today. Afterwards, our short travels on the route will take us our stop at one of the oldest route 66 attractions - the Grand Canyon Caverns and Grotto in Peach Springs, AZ. We will enjoy lunch on the route in Seligman, AZ and enjoy photographing its many restored Route 66 icons from retro diners to motels. Our afternoon along the route will lead us through Williams, AZ - a famous Route 66 stop-over and into Winslow, AZ - as the song says “Standing On The Corner in Winslow, Arizona” - so will we! Our day ends on the route in Holbrook, AZ.

June 11, 2024 - Day 4

After breakfast at the hotel, we will drive down the street and stop to see one of the route’s original Wigwam Motels - even though we won’t “sleep in a Tee Pee tonight” it’s super cool kitschy architecture is a must-see! This afternoon we visit the Petrified Forest National Park visitor center and museum. Motoring east on the route we will travel through Navaho Nation and Torvino Canyon, filled with scenic buttes and mesas - some say this is the most naturally beautiful area on the route! Before leaving Arizona behind, a fun stop at the Tee Pee Trading Post at the state line is a must. Just east we will find one of the oldest stops on our adventure - San Jose Mission church in Laguna, NM. Dating back to 1699, the mission is one of the best-preserved adobe-style buildings in the country. We will gallop through Gallup, NM and follow the route through Albuquerque’s “Route 66” byway in old downtown. We will overnight and enjoy dinner on the route near Moriarty, New Mexico.


June 12, 2024 - Day 5

This morning we will explore one of 66’s most famous stop-overs - Tucumcari, NM! Its famous name gave to the slogan “Tucumcari Tonight” luring weary travelers with the catchy slogan on billboards to the town’s many mid-century retro motels. Tucumcari became a 66 motorist’s destination, and we will tour the old strip and make a stop for lunch in town and another at the famous Tee Pee Curios. Back on the route we go... a break at Rusell’s Route 66 Memorabilia and Car Museum is a fun spot before we get into “The Lone Star” state. An afternoon photo stop at the quirky Cadillac Ranch and at the famous “Big Texan” in Amarillo where we will also have dinner before our overnight in Shamrock, TX.

June 13, 2024 - Day 6

Here in Shamrock, we stop by to see the restored Tower Conoco station and U-Drop Inn. Built in 1935 and named for the four-sided obelisk rising from a flat roof and topped by a metal tulip, the station was, and again is, a vibrant art deco oasis on Route 66. Set against a backdrop of the unrelenting dusty plains, the station was used as the inspiration for “Ramone’s Body Shop” in the Disney/Pixar movie “Cars”. In Clinton, OK, we will explore the Oklahoma Route 66 Museum offering a great presentation of the history, myths, signs, photos and music of the iconic road, plus a diner replica. The museum is one of the largest along the route to visit. Passing through Oklahoma City leads us to a Route 66 iconic swimming home, the Blue Whale in Catoosa, OK. Our overnight will be in Miami, OK.

June 14, 2024 - Day 7

Our departure this morning will bring us into the Show-Me state and highlight Missouri’s iconic Route 66 elements from today and yesterday. In Springfield, known as the “birthplace of Route 66”, we will learn about the efforts of many to create a national road that would soon become famous world-wide. Our drive east, the route will lead us through the “Devil’s Elbow” in Pulaski County and later into Cuba MO. Cuba is home to the restored Wagon Wheel Motel, Murals of Main Street and Fanning Outpost - where sits the world’s largest rocking chair. What a journey - you made it - winding every corner of amazing nostalgia and sights and sounds of the “Mother Road of America” with even so much more than we can write about here, we hope you can join us!
