About Chicago

Most people have heard of the famous Route 66 - most likely within the lyrics of the famous Chuck Berry song. Berry sings, "Well if you ever plan to motor west, just take my way, it's the highway that's the best...get your kicks on Route 66." He might actually be right when he claims that it is the best highway of them all. It is ideal for road tripping, stretching just over 2,400 miles from Illinois to California. If you are wanting to drive the whole Route 66, plan to need at least two weeks in order to see all the historic sights along the way. With 14 full days, you'll be driving an average of about 165 miles a day, so this will leave plenty of time for seeing the main attractions along the way. So what will you see along the way if you choose to take Route 66? The major cities you'll be passing through are Chicago, St. Louis, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, and Los Angeles, but depending on your travel preferences some people choose to avoid these cities. Some of the most sought-after attractions are the Santa Monica Pier, Mural City, the Historic Rainbow Bridge, Route 66 Drive-In Theater, and the Route 66 Museum. These are just a few of the hundreds of attractions along the way, so be sure to create an itinerary before you hit the road.The longest road in the country is US Route 20, and it stretches from coast to coast. This route is often referred to as the "Big Daddy" due to its impressive span of nearly 3,400 miles. If you choose this route you'll be driving through twelve states, starting in Massachusetts and ending in Oregon. The recommended amount of time for completing the whole thing is between 2 to 3 weeks. There are some incredible sites along Route 20, especially if you are wanting to drive the whole thing. Nature lovers will get the chance to admire Yaquina Bay State Recreation Site and the beautiful Yellowstone National Park. Beer and wine drinkers should be sure to check out the famous Deschutes Brewery and Public House in Bend, Oregon as well as the Johnson Estate Winery in Westfield, New York. Other must-see spots are the Idaho Potato Museum, Field of Dreams Movie Site, Michael Jackson's house, and Cedar Point Amusement Park.
