My girlfriend and I are planning our first road trip together. We decided we wanted to travel the former Route 666 just to say we did.
So far the bare basic planning is to take a red-eye into Albuquerque, rent a car and spend the day.
Next day drive to Gallup, and from there travel 451 all the way to Monticello, UT.
Next day drive to Salt Lake City where we can spend the day and stay with relatives.
Next day make the twelve-hour drive back home to Olympia, WA.
The part that hasn't hardly been planned out, ironically, is the 451 trip itself. We're not wanting to just breeze straight through in three hours, we actually want to see things, whether it's countryside or towns. Does anyone have suggestions for places to stop and check out along the way? I like seeing scenery, she likes shopping, we both like getting lunch.
Thanks in advance for any help.
