Books, songs and movies have all celebrated this most American of journeys. And with good reason – it’s a mix of freedom, discovery and adventure, an opportunity to experience extraordinary vistas, charming small towns, and hidden gems.

We’ve hit the road and done our homework to ensure you get the classic Americana experience you’re craving. Our plans put you in the driver’s seat – with us playing navigator – to share with you some of the great roadways and reveal to you some of the best wilderness on earth – our National Parks, Monuments, Preserves, Seashores, Historic Sites, Battlefields, Recreation Areas and more.

HIGHLIGHTS

‘Get Your Kicks’ – Route 66


‘Get Your Kicks’ – Route 66

Established in 1926, covering nearly 2,500 miles from Chicago to Santa Monica, Route 66 was removed from the US Highway System in 1985 after it was replaced by the Interstate Highway System. Fortunately, in 2008 Route 66 was added to the World Monuments Watch to preserve as many of the sites along the route as possible, such as gas stations, motels, cafés, trading posts and drive-in movie theaters.

Probably the best state to relive the glory days of Route 66 is in Arizona, where a long segment of Route 66 in Arizona from Seligman to Kingman, Arizona. Call us and we’ll create a custom road trip that combines this legendary stretch of Route 66 along with a visit to the Grand Canyon, Sedona and other parks and destinations in Arizona and California.
