Welcome to Brits on Route 66
Route 66 road trip planning guide and American travel and lifestyle blog, with a British twist
In this exclusive Heroes of Highway 66 interview, I chat to Swa Frantzen from Historic66.com, the oldest Route 66 resource on the internet. Swa talks his top Route 66 attractions, his favourite Mother Road memories and what it was like to meet Bob Waldmire in his iconic VW campervan.
Wish you could book a trip to the US this year, but your wallet won’t stretch to it? Don’t worry, you can still indulge in some of the best American music, food and entertainment at some great American festivals in the UK instead. Check out my list of 2019’s best Americana events and American festivals in the UK.
The Illinois Route 66 Regent Street Motor Show returned to the UK’s capital this November, attracting more than 500,000 visitors. With the event’s website promising a whole of host Americana, I made sure I was one of them. But is it worth you doing the same next year? My review might help you decide.
Introducing a brand new series of exclusive interviews with the ‘Heroes of Highway 66’, the legends impacting the history of Route 66. In the first edition, I talk to Route 66 News’ Ron Warnick about the website’s origins, his must-see road trip attractions and how his obsession with the Mother Road began.
Having got engaged on the Mother Road, we couldn’t wait to plan our Route 66 wedding and share our road trip memories with our family and friends. The cake, the outfits, the entertainment, and pretty much most aspects of the day, were inspired by Route 66 and I can’t wait to share it all with you.
If you have a wheat intolerance or have coeliac disease, you might be wondering how you’ll be able to eat on Route 66. Isn’t America the home of deep dish pizzas, pancakes and burgers? Fear not. I’ve put together a list of 42 gluten free restaurants across each of the Route 66 states so you can be sure of three square meals a day.
