Welcome to Route 66

In California, Route 66 mostly follows the National Trails Hwy, prone to potholes and dangerous bumps. From the beach in Santa Monica, it rumbles through the LA basin, crosses over the Cajon Pass to the railway whistle-stop towns of Victorville and Barstow and runs a gauntlet of Mojave Desert ghost towns, arriving in Needles near the Nevada state line.

In larger towns, Mother Road relics may require a careful eye amid more contemporary architecture, but as you head toward Nevada, wide-open vistas and the occasional landmark remain barely changed from the days of road-trippers.

Arizona Ghost Town, Route 66, Wild West Tour from Las Vegas

After pickup from your Las Vegas hotel, take a short drive by comfortable van to the Hoover Dam for a brief photo stop. This 726-foot (221-meter) dam holds back the mighty Colorado River, behind which you’ll find Lake Mead, a beautiful man-made reservoir contained within the Black Canyon walls. Take all the ‘dam’ photos you want!Next, head to the small mining town of Chloride, a community that has survived the harsh desert environment since the 1860s. Silver and other minerals were mined here for decades, and after the mining boom was over, Chloride nearly became a ghost town. Today, Chloride is home to about 250 residents who are very proud of their mining history. Browse the antique shops; admire the various artistic sculptures; and chat with the locals before enjoying lunch.Next, drive along the Historic Route 66 highway to the small ghost town of Oatman. The present-day population of this ghost town is 150 people and one poltergeist who goes by the name of ‘Oatie the Ghost.’ He’s believed to be the poor spirit of William Ray Flour, an Irish miner who died behind the Oatman Hotel. Enjoy views of the Black Mountains and the tumbleweeds and wild burros that freely roam through the town. Have your picture taken alongside modern-day cowboys and bandits while posing in front of an authentic Route 66 sign. You'll also have a chance to take part in a Western shootout.

Your last stop before returning to the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas will be in El Dorado, which was named by the Spaniards who discovered gold in the area. This town served as the backdrop for many famous western movies and also housed the famous Techatticup Mine, where millions of dollars worth of gold and silver have been unearthed.Your tour will conclude with drop-off at your original departure point.

Chicago Walking Tour: Modern Architecture

By the middle of the 20th century, architects trained in the tenets of Modernism began to experiment with new materials and forms. Their buildings featured technical precision, an expressed structure and a lack of ornamentation. But rather than just the “skin and bones” architecture advocated by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Mid-Century Modern buildings often used sculptural curved forms and fewer 90 degree angles than the International Style buildings that predated them.Architects experimented with poured concrete, rather than just steel and glass, and used various prefabricated methods of construction. Bertrand Goldberg’s Marina City is one such example.Characteristics include: • Organic forms inspired by nature • Clean lines • No applied ornamentation • Innovative uses of glass • A mixture of various materials
