Me and a friend are planning to drive route 66 in October next year. So far we have only booked the flights landing in Chicago 30th Sept and flying out from Los Angeles 18th Oct. We have also arranged our car hire. We are planning on going through Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and California. We are two girls from the UK in our early 20's. As much as we want to experience the historic side we also want to enjoy good night life etc. We are planning to include the canyon and vegas. Any advice at all would be gratefully received. ie cheap accommodation, good night-life, must see's etc.
