How long does it take to drive?

It takes a significant amount a time to drive down the length of Route 66, not only because of the distance but also because of the many landmarks, beautiful sceneries, roadside attractions, and photo opportunities. There are plenty of locals, some of them running roadside businesses, that would love to chat with you and provide information about their town on Route 66.

Squeezing the entire length into less than 2 weeks would be more of a race than a vacation.

If you can’t afford 3 weeks or more, it’s probably better to plan to do only a shorter section of Route 66 and leave the rest for another time – “next year”.

Try to stay well below 200 miles (~300 km) a day, or you’ll feel rushed.
