The Route and the Trail Trip
8 Days following Route 66 and the Santa Fe Trail
On this trip, you can get your kicks on a major portion of old US Route 66 (that's the "Route" part), and experience the landscape forged by pioneers along the Santa Fe Trail (the "Trail" part). The trip can take 7-10 days, depending on how fast or slow you want to travel. I did it in 8 days.
Starting in St. Louis
On this day, I arrived in St. Louis, then visited a few attractions along Route 66 in Missouri and Illinois.
