St Louis is the largest City along Route 66 between Chicago and Los Angeles, and there are many “must-sees” and related sites on The Mother Road. Its iconic, 630-ft. Gateway Arch, built in the 1960s, honours the early 19th-century explorations of Lewis and Clark and America's westward expansion in general. With its cache of vibrant museums, gardens, parks and breweries, you'll find plenty of reasons to meet in St. Louis. Family-oriented travelers will likely venture to Forest Park for a Saint Louis Zoo visit. Others will savor complimentary drinks at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery before embarking on a pub crawl around The Loop.
Known as "The Cultural Centre of the Ozarks", the city of Springfield lies in the southwestern part of the state of Missouri, about 50 miles north of the Arkansas border. The city is home to Missouri State University, and also home to Ozarks Technical Community College, and Drury and Evangel Universities. Springfield is served by Interstate 44 which leads to St. Louis (215 miles to the northeast). Other major highways serving the city include U.S. Routes 60, 65, and 160, and Missouri State Highway 13. Portions of historic U.S. Route 66 still exist in parts of the city. The county seat of Greene County, Springfield is situated just 45 miles north of the major tourist and entertainment destination of Branson.
Oklahoma is a midwestern U.S. state whose diverse landscape includes the Great Plains, mountains, lakes and forests. Oklahoma City, the capital, is home to the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, recognizing the state’s pioneer history, and the Bricktown entertainment district, popular for dining and nightlife. From forests to sand dunes to rolling prairies to cypress swamps, Oklahoma has more diverse terrain per square mile than any other state. It also contains the headquarters of 39 Native American nations, the most drivable miles of Route 66, world-class Western art museums and real-life cowboys and cowgirls who you can watch in action at the Oklahoma City Stockyards’ twice-weekly auctions.
Amarillo offers a true Western heritage, a unique geographical area with wide open spaces and breath-taking sunrises and sunsets. Amarillo is also a gateway to Palo Duro Canyon, America's second largest canyon. With its relatively mild climate, the city is rated as having some of the cleanest air in the country. Indians, conquistadors, buffalo hunters, settlers, cowboys, adventurers, lawmen, gunfighters, and the railroad all contributed in many ways to the development and growth of the area. That heritage is still felt here, where "cowboy" is still an honorable profession. Here you can enjoy the very best of the Old and New West! Founded in 1887, the city charter was adopted in 1913.
Immerse yourself in the rich culture and heritage of Albuquerque, rooted in centuries of history. Soak in its blue skies and sun that shines 310 days a year-perfect for outdoor activities. Breathe in the high desert air scented with sage and piñon, and you'll understand why Albuquerque is a destination like no other. There are a variety of things to do in Albuquerque. Whether you're visiting one of the 14 beautiful golf courses, taking a hot-air balloon flight over the scenic Rio Grande Valley, mountain biking in the Sandia Mountains, hiking among dormant volcanoes, horseback riding along the river or strolling through Old Town, you'll find Albuquerque offers a real breath of fresh air.
Flagstaff is the ideal base for exploring the treasures of the Grand Canyon. The city is surrounded by natural wonders and some of the West's most beautiful country from the Coconino National Forest, the San Francisco Peaks to the Red Rocks of Sedona and the rugged deserts of neighbouring Native American nations. But that's not all. With over 200 restaurants, a variety of outstanding accommodations, world-class attractions, and colourful nightspots the small-towns charm gives big town excitement.
Las Vegas is widely regarded as the Entertainment Capital of the World and remains one of the top holiday destinations for UK travellers. Set in the Mohave Desert, Las Vegas is famous for its opulent casino hotels, fantastic shows and of course its 24-hour entertainment and gambling. It's known as Sin City for good reason! Las Vegas has been inextricably associated with legendary shows and entertainers. Say "Las Vegas Holidays" and it's likely that showgirls in elaborate headdresses and Elvis impersonators will come to mind. In addition to the iconic Las Vegas entertainment staples, the destination offers a line-up of award-winning magicians, Broadway productions and world-renowned concert headlines. From elaborately themed nightclubs to the new wave of trendy, ultra-chic lounges sweeping the Strip - visitors know when they step out in Las Vegas, it will be an experience they won't forget!
Los Angeles "City of Angels" is as much an idea as it is a physical city and covers an area of 6500 square miles. With ten major shopping districts, an incredible variety of dance, music, theatre, theme parks, professional sporting events, television and motion picture production, L.A. is the undisputed "Entertainment Capital of the World". LA runs deeper than her blonde beaches, rolling hills and beemers-for-days would have you believe. She’s a myth. A beacon for countless small-town dreamers, rockers and risk-takers, an open-minded angel who encourages her people to live and let live without judgement or shame where it has given us the like of Quentin Tarantino, Jim Morrison and Serena Williams just to name a few.
