Your Destinations

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.

Head to the beautiful mountain city of Flagstaff in the alpine air, before departing for the bright lights of Vegas where you'll stop 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.

Your Itinerary

Your Itinerary Your Itinerary
Day 1  Arrival / Chicago
Arrive at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. Take your car at the airport or your motorcycle close by. Then make your first steps in the Windy City.

2 nights in Chicago.

Day 2 Chicago
During these two days, discover a splendid and atmospheric city set on the shores of Lake Michigan. Chicago is the American jewel for architecture with its collection of slender buildings. The Midwest capital is both cultural with beautiful museums, stimulating, and relaxing. Take a walk on the famous Magnificent Mile and discover the Navy Pier. For architecture lovers, we suggest an architectural cruise to navigate between the buildings. If you liked New York, you'll love Chicago!
Day 3: Chicago / St Louis
Departure for the south. Your real road trip through route 66 is starting here. Illinois’ road is green and beautiful, surrounded by vast agricultural plains, to St. Louis, where the Mississippi joins Missouri. Lewis and Clark left St Louis to start their western conquest. 

1 night in St. Louis.

Day 4: St Louis / Springfield
On your way to Springfield, you pass through the West Gate and discover Missouri. This state has a past, a soul, a strong identity linked to the memory of Indians and the memory of the American Civil War. Finish your journey in Springfield, a city that offers both all the assets of a big city and the benefits of a small town. Springfield has been the testimony of many battles. 

1 night in Springfield.

Day 5: Springfield / Tulsa
On this road, cross Joplin, the embodiment of Route 66 : motels, Coca-Cola signs, gas stations and old cars. Go see the bison in Bartlesville National Park & stop at the great museum of western history.

1 night in Tulsa.
Day 6: Tulsa / Oklahoma City
Departure for Oklahoma City. You are in the midst of western, and may be crossing the "trail of tears", the road taken by Indians kidnapped by force from their territories. On the way, do not miss the National Cowboy Hall of Fame. Finish your journey in Oklahoma City. 

1 night in Oklahoma City.

Day 7: Oklahoma City / Amarillo
Follow the beautiful road to Texas. Discover the city of Amarillo, known for its famous Pop Art monument Cadillac Ranch, this famous sculpture composed of Cadillacs half buried in the ground. The area is splendid with its huge ranches and cattle along the roads. 

1 night in Amarillo.

Day 8: Amarillo / Santa Fe
Your trip to the United States takes on Indian colors and Spanish accents as soon as you arrive in Santa Fe, a charming colorful Mexican city, a pleasant and inescapable city of art. Contemplate its simplicity and adobe-style homes, including the buildings around the central square.

1 night in Santa Fe.

Day 9: Santa Fe / Taos
Between the mountains, the blue sky contrasts with the Indian pueblos churches, a magnificent route to Taos. In the region, do not miss the troglodyte dwellings of the Bandelier National Park. On your arrival in Taos, stroll in this Spanish-style city pueblo and enjoy this soothing place, far from the American rhythm! You can also admire the Rio Grande course from the second largest suspension bridge in the United States.

1 night in Taos.
Day 10: Taos / Holbrook
On the way to Holbrook, ghost towns follow one another. You will also pass by Albuquerque. The Cultural Center of the Indian Pueblo is an excellent introduction to the Indian culture. Then visit the famous petrified forest. Welcome to Arizona!

1 night in Holbrook.

Day 11: Holbrook / Grand Canyon / Flagstaff
Head to the mythical Grand Canyon, through the gigantic Meteor Crater and Flagstaff. You will feel so small in front of the splendor and immensity of the Grand Canyon! The beauty of nature is striking here, the dizzying immensity, the mineral colours perfectly insensate.

1 night in Flagstaff.
Days 12 & 13 : Flagstaff / Williams / Las Vegas 
On the road, stop at Seligman and Kingman, mythical cities of Route 66. 
Arrival in Las Vegas: the capital of the game with its big hotels, its wacky architecture, its neon lights, its casinos ... it is an amazing city that suddenly appears in the middle of the desert like a mirage. Perhaps it is also the occasion of a secret wedding? 

2 nights in Las Vegas.

Days 14 to 15: Los Angeles
Drive to Los Angeles, where you will discover its downtown, its Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, and its incredible beaches like Venice Beach in Santa Monica. Do not forget the movie studios, Hollywood and its famous Sunset Boulevard. Sip a drink on a Rooftop and spend a few days resting and enjoying your well-being.

2 nights in LA.

Day 16: Los Angeles / Departure
Last day under the Californian sun, transfer your vehicle to the airport and take your flight home.
