US Road Trip Trends In 2019
When it comes to road trips, USA is one of my favorites.
The reason for that is the changing nature, the sceneries and because USA is soooo BIG! 🙂
1. Route 66 – US Road Trip Trends In 2019.
Route 66 is the MUST try Classic American Road Trip. The Route 66 start at Lake Michigan and taking you all the way to LA. During the ride, you will cross six states, plenty of small towns, farmland, forests, canyons, plains, and deserts. This road has its own life and has got many names, like “The heart and Soul of America” and “The Mother Road”.
This legendary road was built back in 1920sand covers 2,400 miles between Santa Monica, Los Angeles to Chicago. The Road was decommissioned in 1984 but was designated as Historic Route 66. Even today it is possible to follow much of the classic original road from the 1920s.
It is up to you how to plan the route and how much time you will spend on Route 66. We recommend to stay 3-4 weeks on the Road, so you have plenty of time to explore all the great stuff on the road.
What can be seen on Route 66?

Some friends of mine went to the USA, rented motorbikes and spend the summer on Route 66.
Also, several movies have been shot at and around Route 66.
