The journey on Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica is certainly America’s most iconic road trip. Route 66 is called the mother road–and for good reason. But this iconic road is a challenging road to tackle in many ways. Thankfully, our friends over at Roadtrippers have just released a quirky new guidebook that is packed with all of the insider intel that you will ever need to conquer the mother road. Roadtrippers Route 66: Chicago to Santa Monica breaks the mother road down into six legs:
- Chicago to St. Louis
- St. Louis to Tulsa
- Tulsa to Amarillo
- Amarillo to Albuquerque
- Albuquerque to Flagstaff
- Flagstaff to Santa Monica
It feels fitting to me that the folks at Roadtrippers broke their guidebook down into legs instead of chapters. Each “leg” contains route highlights, featured campgrounds, featured accommodations, a playlist of songs that is specific to that leg, Then the “on the road” sections offer up all of the best recommendations for each of the major points of interest along that leg of the road. The featured campground recommendations for each leg make this the best Route 66 guidebook on the market for campers and RV owners of all kinds.
