Out of Route 66’s 2451 miles, in my opinion Arizona is home to the route’s best miles, not only does it have some unique attractions, it also has my favourite stretch of road!

The Sitgreaves Pass is definitely an awesome drive that’s not to be missed!

When doing a road trip like Route 66, you pass through hundreds of little towns, all with places to stop and eat, it’s impossible to stop at every single one without either bankrupting yourself or returning home double the weight of what you were when you started! To save money, for some meals we stopped at gas stations and supermarkets such as Walmart and ate the complimentary breakfasts at the hotels, this way we only had to pay for a full meal once a day. Here are 6 of my favourite restaurants along Route 66!
