Route 66 – Western Side

9 Days, October 24th - November 1st

The second half of your journey down The Mother Road is very different from the eastern side. The spaces are more wide open in the west. There are national parks and the little towns are further apart and have a different personality. For the first time, the western half of the trip features two 2-night stays, in Albquerque and Winslow.

In Albuquerque, having extra time allows us to drive down the length of the longest Route 66 Main Street in the country, and take a side trip to Santa Fe (which was on the original route of the old highway). In Winslow, you’ll want your picture “Standin’ on a Corner in Winslow, Arizona,” (like the lyric in the old Eagles song), and we’ll head out to Petrified Forest National Park, one of the most fascinating places in the country. Of course, the highlight of your Winslow stay, and perhaps your entire trip, is your time at La Posada, a restored Harvey House Hotel from the highway’s glory days.

See the old Cadillacs “rear ends up” in Texas and eat at the famous Big Texan in Amarillo. Meet legendary Angel Delgadillo, the retired barber in Seligman, Arizona, who is the man most responsible for the preservation of the old highway. He’s 91 now and still going strong.

Finish at the pier in Santa Monica, but not before a plethora of SoCal “attractions” make their way into your Mother Road memories. You’ll have a chance to sleep in a tepee if you so desire; and see where General Patton prepared his troops for WWII.

Whether you choose only this half of the journey, or combine it with the eastern side, you will discover the heartbeat of our country. It’s the opportunity to learn how other people in other places live and what they think. It’s a slice of America you will never, ever forget.
