An easy day before Palo Duro is Enchanted Trails west of Albuquerque. Camping World right next door. Antique caravans on the grounds. Worth a stop.

My overnight camp reservations are a mix of State Parks, Private RV Resorts and a few KOAs. A few reservations I'm excited about are Bluewater State Park and Hyde Memorial in New Mexico. I'm also looking forward to Palo Duro Canyon State Park in Texas. Are there any great sites, restaurants, etc... I must see along the way?

Thanks in advance, gypsy travelers!


Thank's for the thanks'.

The La Posada Hotel in Winslow is located on old Route 66. It is a wonderful place to stop and check out one of the great hotels of its day (1920s). It also has a fantastic restaurant. We stop here every chance we get...

I tried. I failed. I got a doggie bag.

North of I-40 between the Lakeside exit and the Whittaker exit.
The Big Texan runs a shuttle to Amarillo Ranch RV Park, a nice RV park with indoor pool, hot tub and sauna.
While in Amarillo don't miss the Cadillac Ranch...

Remember its not the destination, but rather the journey.... its what's in the middle that matters the most!

Best roadtrip ever had, rode Route 66 from calif. to oklahoma on the motorcycle. So many cool places to see. You will go by edwards air force base in the middle of the desert, Baghdad cafe like some else talked about. Got to stop and have a hamburger, fries, and a vanilla shake. The town of Amboy is an iconic stop on route 66, they were restoring the town back in 2006 when I was there. Make sure your gas tank is full whenever you see gas so you don't have to detour to interestate 40. Be careful if you see signs that say pavement ends it ENDS. You will have to drive on gravel roads for a few miles since Route 66 is no longer designated as a highway it is up to local areas to maintain it. Don't worry it is good road and even the gravel areas are maintained. Oatman arizona, the wild burros roam the streets so be careful they will walk right out in front of you and they will let you pet them. Have some apples for a treat for them. I know this is a long post but there is just so much to see and do on THE MOTHER ROAD. Don't forget winslow arizona, the cadillac ranch in texas, the teepee motel and so much more. Do lots of research before your trip and plan on taking plenty of time and enjoy the greatest road trip you will ever take.

The Bagdad cafe used to called the 'Sidewinder', my parents used to own the Little Cafe about half mile done the road, it was a A frame styled building, now someone's house. Amboy used to have a restaurant with an amazing antique gun collection.
