Hi fellow honeymoon route 66 er. We are doing route 66 later this year, and we have around 3 weeks including a few days in Vegas to get married. I think the founder of this site, had a similar timescale to you and went up part of Highway 1 in CA at the end of his trip, including a few side trips. What we are finding as we are planning, is there are some states with very little we must see and others with more interest for us.
Start jotting down your must sees, and soon you will work out where you can save time.

Hi Jo,
I drove the length of Route 66 including a day spent in Santa Fe, 3 nights in Vegas and 1 night at the Grand Canyon. I did that in 2 weeks and spent a further week driving up the west coast to San Francisco. If you're not visiting Vegas as I did then you could fit your planned trip into 2.5 weeks.
Hope this helps,

Drove Route 66 in August 2007 - hope to do it again one day in the not too distant future.

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
