EV will soon be the way a lot of people, families, and companies travel down Route 66. Some of the ways this will happen are slowly starting already by new and exciting vehicles available for the first time to the public. Ford, GM, and Others are leading the way with new and various types of EV. Then the gas station or rest stop of the future will also be changing as well. The idea of taking the trip in a EV is also challenging to begin with knowing that you can only go so far on a charge. Keep up with the EV Tour of Route 66 as we get ready to host EV Only Trips from Chicago to LA and back in a much more quieter way. Stay Tuned, the next chapter is about to begin.
Today we started our journey in the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach E - California Route 1 Edition from Chicago to Santa Monica. The journey started at the famous Palmer House Hilton as it was there in 1926. From the Palmer House was our start and our first day stop was in St. Louis at the Union Station Hotel in downtown St. Louis, Tomorrow we set out for Tulsa, OK and possibly OKC and the Colcord Hotel. Check out our daily posts online to keep up as we get our kicks on Route 66!
OK, so we started in Chicago as everyone usually does and head Westward. The easier and best way to do Route 66 these days is using one consistent and incredibly talented Hotel Chain. You not get the neon outside your window or the major fingers bed, but you do get amazing service, excellent locations on the Route itself and more importantly consistent care and help along the way. So here is the breakdown so far on the trip and of course we recommend every single property as they are ALL amazing and give you the time and the ability to enjoy the road that much better.
