I wanna get my kicks on Route 66...

I was just watching a documentary on Route 66 by a couple German guys, and even though they spent most of the time showing how bad their 1974 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible was, I got the impression it was a pretty awesome trip. This is one road trip I would love to do sometime. Has anyone here done it? Is it something you would recommend? Any towns along the way there are really special? I look forward to hearing what you all have to say! :)

When I was in America we drove from Los Angeles to Las Vegas to San Francisco. It was during this road trip that we found ourselves on route 66. It was not planned and I was pretty chuffed that we found our way on the nostalgic road. I would love to go back some day and take a better look.

Route 66? Well, I have done parts of it. I would have to say around California it is pretty neat - as you head into Los Angeles there are a lot of old restuarants that are nostalgic. My favorite drive was on Pacific Highway 1 - I have gone from Baja California to Oregon on Highway 1 - a pretty fantastic journey indeed. Another favorite is the Mississippi River road - Highway 61. I have been at the start of the Mississippi at Lake Itasca to as far as Memphis TN. I would like one day to finish it all the way to the Gulf of Mexico...someday.
