- Review By TripAdvisor Traveler, Hogfamily, Anchorage, Alaska
Tip: You’ll only drive the Main Street of America once, so be sure to allow enough time - two weeks at least; adding another seven days opens up even more opportunities for horseback riding, hiking, kitsch-filed pit stops and museum tours.
This is an epic, icon-packed, music-drenched, bucket list of a road trip. Peppered with retro diners and vintage motels, it rolls west, beside echoes of pioneers, cowboys and a Presidential past. From Chicago’s lake, via cinematic deserts it winds to the Pacific shore. Steeped in nostalgia and romance, rich in canyons, sunsets and neon signs this, the Mother Road still speaks to America’s soul.
