Route 66 - The Great Outdoors

The Great Outdoors Along Route 66 
Along your Route 66 road trip you will encounter a variety of natural wonders right outside your window. One of our favourite things to do along Route 66 that gets you outside and into the Arizona landscape is a visit to the Petrified Forest National Park. Here, weathered logs turned to stone over many, many years offer a glimpse into prehistoric times. 
Continuing westward, a detour on your Route 66 holiday leads to the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon. Its colossal chasm, carved by the Colorado River, stands as one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. This breath-taking sight is one you will never forget and is well worth the detour on your Route 66 holiday. Plus, you can enjoy a night or two in Flagstaff, Arizona! 
When you reach Missouri on your Route 66 holiday, you’ll come across an underground treasure: The Meramec Caverns. Explore a subterranean world of mesmerising stalactites and stalagmites – a true testament to Earth's magnificent geological history. Take a detour to these natural wonders, or a day trip from St. Louis! 
On your Route 66 holiday, why not involve visits to some of America’s best natural wonders, and a few hidden gems too! From the petrified relics in Arizona's desert to the awe-inspiring grandeur of the Grand Canyon and the hidden marvels beneath Missouri's surface, book your Route 66 holiday with Charter Travel and have the adventure of a lifetime!
