Thread: Road Trip Ideas

  1. Default Road Trip Ideas

    Evening everyone,

    Just after some advice, a few years ago we travelled around California for 2 weeks on the Pacific Coast Highway and really enjoyed our trip. Well we are wanting to do another route, we've got a 2 week break and was wondering if you could do Route 66 in two weeks but still see loads? We've actually got 3 weeks but want to fly to Hawaii to relax for a week. If anyone has any other ideas we are open to ideas. Thanks in advance.

    Default Only sections exist.

    Hello and welcome back to RTA !

    You can certainly drive across the country and do some sight seeing in 2 weeks, but you need to know that route 66 was decommisioned many years ago. Yes there are sections left that you can search out, but by and large it has been replaced by Interstate. I would rcommend you look around the forum and other RTA planning resources in the tool bars above for inspiration. I don't know how far inland you ventured on your last trip, but Grand canyon and AZ, the National parks of Southern Utah and/or Colorado make for some spectacular scenery. Trouble is there are many great areas to choose from. Nice problem to have though!

    This page has some great '66 links to help with your research.

    Default Are you a planner or a winger?

    David, you say neither where you are starting, nor whether you need your itenary planned, etc. But there is absolutely nothing wrong with hopping in the car and heading for the horizon, just to see what's there. Create your trip on the run and enjoy and relish in all the little discoveries you make. This is best done by staying off the Interstates, keeping the speed down and stopping in the most unlikely places. You could be surprised what gems you may stumble upon.

    Be adventurous!
