We would like to have an enjoyable drive and get to see as much as is reasonable, we might drive in shifts in "boring" stretches to make time.
We are wondering what places you would recommend?
I have thought about going directly to the canyon (fast), seeing grand canyon, then stopping at places along route 66 on the way back.
Does this sound too ambitious?
We like parks, natural beauty, good food, moderately priced lodging :) and of coarse historic places, museums and whatnot.
My gal likes country music related stuff but no idea if there is anything on route 66 that fits that bill :)
