10 Of The Best Stops That You Won’t Want To Miss On A Route 66 Road Trip

Quick question: if someone were to say “iconic American destination,” what would you think of?  The Statue of Liberty and the Grand Canyon immediately come to mind but, more than likely, Route 66 is somewhere on that list. Route 66 is about as American as it gets, and to this day, it’s well worth the time and effort to enjoy a road trip across the United States via the “Mother Road” (with bits and pieces of Interstate 40 mixed in, for good measure). If you find yourself embarking on a Route 66 road trip, be sure to stop at these iconic spots along the way, from west to east.

So, what do you think? What are some of your very favorite stops on Route 66? Tell us your stories and make sure to send in your photos – we’d love to see them!
