My fiancé and I are planning a honeymoon on route 66, and trying to decide if we can fit san fran into 2.5 weeks. Has anyone done this trip yet, and confortably fitted it in? Including Santa fe.

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,

Set up the Driving Route 66 website in 2010 following the best road trip experience in 2007.
