The all-American road trip has a place on any globetrotter's wish list - and this one truly earns its stripes (and stars). Stamp a few vintage luggage stickers on a well-worn leather case and whiz from Chicago to Los Angeles via the
world-famous Route 66
with the windows down and the system up.
Labelled as the nation's 'Mother Road' by John Steinbeck, you'll take in the best of America in bite-sized chunks. From small-town outback villages to gaudy glitz
, retro Americana to cowboys and Indians, sizzling jazz riffs to country and western twangs and spectacular canyons to white sandy beaches, Route 66 covers it all.
You'll kick-start your trip in the 'Windy City' of Chicago, where you'll spend two nights. Take in the city's vibrant arts scene, cutting edge restaurants and long sandy beaches
, before you laze by Lake Michigan with an expanse of skyscrapers as your backdrop.
You'll then belt up and head for the beer, baseball, jazz and good-time vibes
of St. Louis, stopping en-route for a night in Springfield. Afterwards, you'll drive into the vibrant red dust of Oklahoma, where you'll experience American cowboy culture and country and western life
Next, you'll cruise onto Albuquerque, the home of Breaking Bad, where you'll stay for a night before heading to Amarillo, a city bursting with small-town American charm.
Head to the beautiful mountain city of Flagstaff for a two night stay in the alpine air, before departing for the bright lights of Vegas where you'll stop for three nights in the heart of Sin City. Take a visit to the spectacular Grand Canyon
or soak up the casinos, mega-shows and drive-in chapels
Your journey ends with two nights in LA, where you'll spend your days people-watching on Rodeo Drive, taking in the Hollywood Hills and power-walking on Venice Beach
