The Mother of all RV Road Trips!

Get your kicks on Route 66 on this nostalgic trip across the Mother Road, and explore hidden gems along the way. From Chicago to Santa Monica we get an inside look at classic America. Step back in time with stops featuring classic cars and memorabilia, landmark buildings selling gas, diner food, sodas and shakes, hear the buzz of the classic neon signs outside of historic motels. We reminisce of days past and say good-bye on a farewell sunset dinner at the end of the trail in Santa Monica overlooking the ocean.
