Independent travel company, Medway Leisure Travel, has created the ultimate 21 night USA road trip adventure by combining the iconic Route 66 which journeys across the heartland of America, with Highway 1, taking in California's stunning Pacific coastline.

Starting in Chicago, you'll follow the Mother Road west. Enjoy taking in the sights of preserved Route 66 memorabilia, impressive landscapes and modern infrastructure whilst capturing the culture and diversity of this great country. During your cross-country exploration you'll sleep in a Wigwam, visit the mighty Grand Canyon and experience the bright lights of Las Vegas.

Experience delights such as hot dogs on a stick and frozen custard to the eating challenge at the Big Texan Steak Ranch, a night at the original movie star base El Rancho as well as a drive through the Petrified Forest and ending by the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

After a quick switch of cars in Los Angeles, you'll journey along one of the world's most scenic routes that leads to San Francisco. Swing by charming surf towns, travel through the winelands and discover romantic hideaways as you explore California's rugged Pacific coastline, arguably one of the most beautiful routes in the world.

Take in the Californian beaches, watch sea otters basking in the sun at Moonstone beach, make time to see the McWay Falls that plummets into the ocean and end your adventure with a trip to Alcatraz or simply admire the magnificent Golden Gate Bridge.

On 21 August 2017, road trip travellers will be able to witness nature's celestial spectacle, taking place across the United States – a total eclipse of the sun. Totality will sweep the nation from the Pacific Coast to the Atlantic Coast and will be the first total eclipse visible only in the USA since the country was founded in 1776.

Medway Leisure Travel are also offering a 'no one-way drop off fee' which applies for car hire collected from Chicago O'Hare Airport and dropped off at Los Angeles Airport and a second car being collected at Los Angeles Airport and dropped off at San Francisco Airport.
