What to see in the USA with your rental car
The USA is a huge country where the car is king. The classic American road trip which involves travellers driving from one side of the country to the other is considered the pinnacle of driving holidays by many. A shorter journey undertaken by travellers to America is that of the old Route 66, which stretched from Chicago to Los Angeles. It’s a journey of some 2,000 miles and takes in a number of famous cities, including Albuquerque, Tulsa and Oklahoma City. Sights on the way include the Grand Canyon in Arizona and the Willis Tower (Sears Tower) in Chicago.
