Scratch Map® USA Poster: Our Guide to Route 66 by Car

Scratch Map USA by Luckies

Route 66 is about as iconic as it gets when it comes to America. The food, the fun, the sun and all the unique motels along the way. Pack up your Scratch Map® USA poster, a GPS and all the road trip music you can stuff into a glove box because it’s time for the Scratch Map® USA poster guide to the ultimate Route 66 road trip.

 

1. Lou Mitchell’s

The first stop on this 8 state tour is in Chicago, which is a large bit of city to uncover on your Scratch Map® USA poster. Just a hop, skip and a jump from the start of Route 66 is Lou Mitchell’s, a restaurant that has become synonymous with Route 66. Thousands of road trippers have stopped here for a bite before heading out onto the open road – it’s the only way to start your road trip.

 

2. Pops
You’re driving; it’s pretty obvious that you’re going to need a few stops for gas. If you happen to be heading past Arcadia, Oklahoma, you may just have to fill er’ up at Pops. Don’t worry, you won’t miss it, just look for the 66-foot tall soda bottle. It’s both a gas stop and café with hundreds of unique soda flavours to stock up on for the rest of the drive.

 

3. Cadillac Ranch
West of Amarillo, Texas is a unique piece of Americana, the Cadillac. The Cadillac Ranch is 10 Cadillacs buried nose first into the dirt, and they’ve been brightly drenched in paint and graffiti. Best part? More graffiti is encouraged so after you’re done Instagramming these colourful creations, grab a can and sign your name.

 

4. Wigwam Motel
It wouldn’t be an ultimate road trip without some unique motels on the way and Wigwam Motel is one of the best. In the slightly run down town of Holbrook, Arizona it’s hard to miss the magnificence of faux tepees that make up this motel. If you’re in need of some shut eye while racing through Arizona, do not miss an opportunity to mark this town off your Scratch Map® USA poster.

 

5. Elmer’s Bottle Tree Ranch
For another artistic turn on this road to freedom, Elmer has the answer. Not too far from Barstow, California is an assortment of sculptures made from recycled bottles and other materials. You may even run into Elmer himself who is always working up new additions to his off road art gallery.

 

6. Santa Monica Pier
Santa Monica Pier is a non-negotiable addition to your road adventure. It’s where Route 66 ends and it has everything a tired road tripper needs. Restaurants, amusement parks, a place to sleep and most of all a beach and ocean breeze to relax with after that long drive cross-country.

5 of our favourite Adventure Map™ bucket list ideas you need to complete: N. America

Adventure Map by Luckies

Heading to North America this summer? Lucky you! We’re sure you’ve got loads planned already but if you’re struggling for adventure inspiration have a little read of our 5 favourite Adventure Map™ bucket list ideas below…

Experience Zero Gravity – Cape Canaveral, Florida USA

Ever wanted to experience weightlessness? And we aren’t talking about when you’re trying to squeeze into your jeans after the Christmas break. We’re talking about real, Matthew McConaughey, inception type weightlessness. Step right up our first Adventure Map bucket list idea, the Zero Gravity Experience in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Experience true weightlessness, by floating, flipping and soaring in a specially modified Boeing 727.

Pink Sand – Barbuda, Antigua & Barbuda

Sunshine? Check. Palm Trees? Check. Turquoise sea? Check. Nearly 8 miles of deserted pink sandy beach? When can we go?! Thanks to the crushed coral in the sand, Barbuda’s centrepiece beach looks like something out of a fairytale. Stroll the beach for miles without bumping into another soul and if you get a little bored, we’ve heard the snorkelling is great too. If for no other reason, do it for your Instagram.

Eat Escamoles – Mexico City, Mexico

You can’t call yourself a foodie if you haven’t eaten Escamoles in Mexico City. Fact. Escamoles, or insect caviar, is a dish native to Central Mexico that was once considered a delicacy by the Aztecs. Ooo-errrrr. These light-colored eggs are harvested from maguey plants and don’t come cheap so you best start pinching those pennies if you’re heading to Meh-i-co this summer.

Paddle with Orcas – Johnstone Strait, British Columbia, Canada

Considered to be one of the best places in the world to see Killer Whales, it would be rude to go to Canada and not visit Johnstone Strait. Take one of the four day sea kayaking tours and witness Orca in their natural habitat. The base camp is located in the heart of Johnstone Strait, off Vancouver Island, British Columbia so if Killer Whales aren’t your thing, the views alone are still definitely worth the visit.

Stargazing – Natural Bridges National Monument, Utah, USA

Nearly 100,000 people stop at Natural Bridges National Monument in southeast Utah each year but only a fraction of those visitors see its most spectacular offering, the Night Sky. Natural Bridges is one of the darkest national parks in the country so it’s no wonder stargazing there is one of our favourite adventures in North America. This canyon country park offers camping, scenic overlooks & hiking trails, plus 3 sandstone bridges. Go on, you know you want to.

Scratch Map® Capitals Poster: A Beginners Guide to Paris

Scratch Map Capitals by Luckies

Paris is pretty much the ultimate city to visit. You can’t claim to be a traveller without visiting the city of love. So grab your Scratch Map® Capitals poster, pack up your suitcase and prepare to scribble Paris off your list after reading our beginners guide to Paris…

1. The Eiffel Tower

You absolutely CANNOT go to Paris without visiting the Eiffel Tower. Yes it may seem a bit of a tourist trap, but this 19th century architectural wonder is essential and completely worth seeing. Plus it’s close enough to the infamous Notre Dame cathedral and some precious Parisian cafés where you can sit down for a croissant and a latte.

2. Champs-Elysees

It may be another of those cliché things to do but you can’t go to Paris and completely avoid the shopping, it’s what Paris is for. The Champs-Elysees is an essential shopping destination to uncover on you Scratch Map®. There’s a multitude of recognizable storefronts from Sephora to Gap, and even a Starbucks if you’re feeling homesick. But if you want to indulge in the ultimate Parisian cafe, visit Laduree (75, avenue des Champs Elysées 75008) for macarons and coffee – or a champagne cocktail if you’re done shopping!

3. The Louvre

Even if you aren’t a museum goer, the Louvre is too sensational to avoid. You don’t have to do what everyone does and spend 6 or 7 hours hunting for the Mona Lisa, but it’s a great place to mark off your bucket list. It’s important to remember that the Louvre is closed on Tuesdays, and there are a few special circumstances and holidays when you can get in for free, definitely worth checking prior to your visit.

4. Montmartre

If you’ve ever seen an impressionist painting or wanted to be in one of the bohemian centres of Paris, or are maybe just looking for a bit of nightlife, Montmartre is your place. Named after the hill on which the Sacre-Coeur is so comfortable sitting on, this district is tourist friendly and has a great view if you’re brave enough to endure the trek up Montmartre. You can even tick the Moulin Rouge of you to do list, because it’s in the district, along with other night-life hot spots.

5. Get lost

Yes, it isn’t a generic place, but the best thing to do in Paris is just get a bit lost. Brush up on some basic French before you hop the Eurostar and you can go just about anywhere in the city. There’s so many back alleys to explore, wonders to uncover, and food to gorge on that by the end of the trip you’ll have a massive area to uncover on your Scratch Map® Capitals and some great memories to go with it.
