I'm planning a road trip from Chicago to California, taking in several sites on the way. We want to see some cool and interesting stuff, proper old bars, dodgy motels. Don't mind the odd rough night in the car to be honest, adds to the experience. Not that interested in the places specifically designed for tourists.
Can you offer any advise, and a rough estimation of how long we should plan for this?
Here's my rough itinery;
Start: ILLINOIS: Chicago & Springfield
I65 to INDIANA: Possibly take in Indianapolis 500
I70 to MISSOURI: St. Louis
I55 to TENNESSEE: Memphis
I40 to ARKANSAS: Little Rock & Jacksonville
I40 to OKLAHOMA: Oklahoma City
I40 to TEXAS: Amarillo
I40 to NEW MEXICO: Albuquerque
I40 to ARIZONA: Flagstaff
- Grand Canyon
Rt93 to NEVADA: Las vegas
I15 to CALIFORNIA: San Diego or Los Angeles
