Day 1 Our adventure begins as we depart by deluxe motorcoach and journey to Laughlin, Nevada. This is a travel day where you can really absorb the beauty of the desert scenery and appreciation its tranquility. Our tribute to American history starts with a Barstow Route 66 rest stop. We will check into the Edgewater Hotel and Casino, overlooking the Colorado River.
Day 2 It’s an early start for our morning visit to the Balloon Festival for the spectacular Mass Ascension of colorful hot air balloons rising up to greet the day. A patriotic Sunrise Flag Ceremony sets the stage for respect and admiration of this magnificent event. With entertainment of all kinds, excitement is in the air and there is something for everyone. Afterward we will see the famous London Bridge on our way to Oatman, Arizona, a Route 66 highlight where donkeys “rule the town”. An experience not to be missed. Returning to the hotel, enjoy a leisurely evening on your own. Consider a visit to the Colorado Belle or the Riverside Classic Car Collection on your own. The Colorado Belle is a landmark 608 foot authentic replica of a Mississippi Paddlewheel riverboat with its vintage decor and stunning chandeliers.
Day 3 The morning is yours to do as you please. We will spend the afternoon in Kingman, Az. Here we will have a docent led tour of the Mojave Museum and a self-guided tour of the Route 66 Museum located in the Powerhouse Visitor Center. With time for lunch, this promises to be a memorable day. We then will depart for the Balloon Festival, which features the highlight – the Night Glow. This is a visual treat where you will see an explosion of colors made even more vibrant by the hot gas fired into the balloons.
