Route 66

Las Vegas NV to Albuquerque NM

Get your kicks on Route 66!

Route 66, Main Steet of America, the Mother Road; however you wish to call it, this is America’s most famous road. It’s as Americana as it gets! It’s also very evident that the interest in Route 66 goes well beyond the U.S. borders, all you have to do is listen to the many languages heard at stops along the way. I’ve learned through years of marketing tourism that Europeans, especially, love to follow popular routes whether at home or abroad.

I’ve been fascinated with Route 66 since my youth beginning with the early years of going on family road trips to visit relatives to watching the weekly TV series. The interest never left but was placed on a back burner until recently.

The stretch of Route 66 that runs from Albuquerque through Arizona is the section that’s most accessible to where I live, which made it the logical stretch to plan for a tour. It’s packed full of interesting attractions from scenic landscapes to roadside diners, shops, motor lodges, and historic sites. I’ve wanted to plan this tour since the early 90’s, but it wasn’t until 2016 that I decided to stop procrastinating and make it happen. After several trips mapping the route we ran the first tour in 2017.
