Old route 66 goes through Winslow AZ. Remember the song by the Eagles?

Ray, from somewhere, yes. There is a silhouette of a guy "standing on the corner". Many people have their picture taken with him...

You should check out the Berwyn route 66 museum, which is on old 66 (ogden ave) just about 10 miles from its start at buckingham fountain at the lakefront in chicago. Last time i was there they sold a map that showed all remaining original sections of the mother road, and the best paths that connect them.

We're leaving the Tues after Easter to do this trip in our 36' Southwind. Any advice on points of interest, places to stay, places to eat, places to avoid, etc. We've never been out this way any farther than Oklahoma City and never in an RV. We have a month and nothing specific to see other than the Grand Canyon. Would like to stay in as many different states as possible but avoid the big mountains if at all possible.

Well just many things to see-- at the Grand Canyon if you get the chance to walk to the bottom it is well worth it. Walk up permits are usually able to get at Bright Angel Lodge. If nothing else walk down the Bright Angel Trail maybe 1/2 mile Beautiful.

Town of Oatman cool place. Might want to leave RV in Kingman drive toad over there. Nice day trip from Kingman. You can make the trip in a 36' RV Just some blind comers & tight turns. I've done it twice in a 36' coach pulling toad.

Hover Dam worth the stop. Do the full tour inside the Dam

Vegas always Ok. might be able to make enough there to pay for your trip. Ha.

Death Valley NP. great also. Probably still not too hot there.

Lake Havasu, Quartzsite , Yuma, Salten Sea. , Slab City, Sedona, & Jerome are some places to stop & see. Anything along the Colorado river great sights.

I m sure you will get more suggestions.

Russell

Before you go a block on your journey you might as well stop at Russian Tea Time. The Lamb Samsa is to die for. The Vodka flights ain't too shabby either.

We have done it in a 36 foot MH pulling a Jeep. Main thing is take your time. Lots of small towns, etc. With many interesting Rt. 66 businesses still operating. We frequently parked the RV and spent days exploring the isolated parts of the old highway in the Jeep. Fantastic trip!

Southwindjer... From the old chain of rocks bridge [old 66], head out and enjoy the landscape. From the Ozarks, to the rolling hills of Oklahoma, to the deserts. A nice stop is Carthage Mo, winery nearby. As mentioned before, the 66 musuem,[ Ok} There is the "blue hole", in Santa Rosa NM. pictographs in Albuquerque, El Moro outside of Gallup, {inspiration rock & ice caves}. Westward to the painted desert/petrified forest. Walnut canyon just East of Flagstaff is awesome. Then the volcano just north of Flagstaff, on the way to the Canyon. Just enjoy the ride. Have fun. Don't make it a chore.
