If you stay true to your Route 66 plans, it will take you through Winslow AZ.
Try to plan your itinary so you can stay at the La Posada Hotel in Winslow, AZ.
It's a wonderful experience. A Unique place that's been restored to it's magnificance with an excellent restaurant.
It's The Last Great Railroad Hotel built in 1929 by the Santa Fe Railway for the Fred Harvey Company. It's on the National Registry of Historic Places. http://laposada.org/index.php
And since you'll be so close, if not already in your plans, you must go see the Grand Canyon. I think it may be bigger than Wales!!!
I might add---Make reservations at La Posada as soon as you can if you want to stay there to insure getting a room. It's a popular place.
Also, if you plan to stay at the Grand Canyon, make Reservations. Summer is a very busy time for them up there and rooms are limited.
