Traveling on the notorious Route 66 is a dream for many. While it takes a lot of time and planning to drive the entire length of the road all 2, miles of it! It was just enough to know that we will be back for more. Update: We did it again going all the way to Oklahoma! Starting the drive on Route 66 from Los Angeles to the Grand Canyon, we happened across some awesome sites that are worth the detour and longer drive times.
Plan the Timing
We are a family four. Kids are 15 and We will be travelling by car from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon and plan to stay one night. The next day we would like to head back to Los Angeles Anaheim later in the day but stay overnight somewhere We would be interested in seeing natural wonders or some semblance of old time America on our way back to LA from Grand Canyon. Our family of 4 travelled to the Grand Canyon in We stayed at the Kachina Lodge.
