  1. Default ST.Louis To LA route 66 There North Route Back

    Hey how is it going? So I'm planning a trip to La with my best friend from St.Louis MO To L.A. California. Were wanting to head south there down Route 66 and the north route back. Time doesn't matter and were wanting to see these sights and others so any suggestions would be awesome!

    Vail Colorado
    Zion narrows
    Salt flats
    Death Valley
    Yellow Stone Park
    Grand Canyon
    Thanks Striker

    Default well

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Really only one of your sites (The Grand Canyon) is fairly close to Route 66 - about an hour off the path. You should also know that since route 66 was decommissioned in the 1980's, much of the original road doesn't exist anymore or is in pretty poor shape. This is one of the many threads which goes into the mother road in more detail.

    For the rest of your trip, following a basic path of I-15 to I-70 would take you near all of the rest of your destination, except for Yellowstone, which is a pretty good detour away from your other stops. If your time is truly unlimited, then I guess that wouldn't be a problem, though.

    Ya we plan to head the 15 to 70 on our way back to ST.Louis so we can hit all those spots. I own a Web based business so as long as I have internet I am working or able to work so Time is no matter. It is a sad about 66 but oh well theirs still a route through the south. Is there any good points of interest I am missing the are a must see?
