I LOVE roadtrips, so we've been messing around with some cheap openjaw flights we found earlier and we've put together this absolutely massive trip - You'll get to see Chicago, Phoenix, Grand Canyon, Vegas, historical route 66, California / LA .. see what you think!
As per the blog, if you're a more seasoned road tripper or want to do the whole route 66 from Chicago to California (2000 miles in 19 days) then ok! We'll put a couple more example routes in the blog later today. As we mentioned, this is a sample route and you might have some feedback on where else is great to stop off - we'd love to hear it :)
