I am making my first trip "on purpose" down route 66 in my 66 Galaxie 500. I have a question for the forum. I am starting my trip in Oklahoma City going west to California, how many miles do you recommend we do a day.

Hi there - welcome to the forum Smile
I'd say that 150 - 200 miles a day makes for a comfortable trip. When are you going?

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

We are leaving May 6th going to take 2 weeks. We are only going to go as far as Barstow California then spend a few days in Las Vegas before returning back to Maggie Valley NC. I bought a book A Guide Book To Highway 66 by Jack Rittenhouse, first published in 1946. He has Oklahoma City to Amarillo and so on, I wasn't sure if these were broking into days or what.

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.
