The Mother Road, Route 66, USA

Route 66 holidays

Author John Steinbeck called Route 66 the nation’s ‘Mother Road’. Stretching some 2448 miles long from Chicago to Los Angeles across eight states, driving Route 66 will traverse you through small towns where you’ll be overcome with nostalgia. Be transported back to whimsical era from retro diners, cool cars and general stores, as well as uncovering the captivating history of not only Route 66 itself – but why its existence symbolised hope and freedom during the Depression and the World Wars. 

Along this iconic route, you’ll also discover the legends of the Wild West in the rolling prairies of Amarillo in Texas and New Mexico. As well as the ever-changing landscapes as you head west, from the epic cityscapes of Chicago to the heavily forest green hills peppered with low mountain ranges and the lakes of Missouri. And while only 85% of the road has survived, its enduring spirit still lives on. Our Route 66 tours are perfect for fans of retro Americana.

What we see on Route 66

We have captured the heritage and culture of Route 66 in one of our most popular tours, Historic Route 66: America's Main Street, which takes in all the highlights of this iconic stretch. From our start point in Chicago, destinations like Springfield, St Louis and Albuquerque tell the story of the United States' history, including its Native cultures, and the birth of a nation created by explorers. The Grand Canyon makes for a jaw-dropping example of the continent's natural wonder, while glittering, hedonistic Las Vegas is a testament to the decadence and excitement of the nation's extravagant human achievement. This Route 66 tour is vast, adventurous and exciting - and never less than memorable.
