Just a quaint little gift shop on the way to Sitgreave Pass. Take some time in their little museum to learn more about Route 66.

This is a must-see for even a mild Route 66 aficionado. He sells reasonably priced quality memorabilia and has the coldest drinks for miles. Interesting old miscellaneous displays from Route 66 prime days. Friendly and informative proprietor!

We called in at Cool Springs when travelling between Oatman and Kingman and was aware of it after reading through books in advance. It's worth a quick stop for some photos and the purchase of some typical Route 66 items but otherwise, there's not much to do for more than a few minutes.

My wife and I were in Goodyear AZ searching for someplace to go visit, that we could tie to the Historic Route 66. This is one of several attractions that we chose to visit. We drove about 5 hours to specifically visit this attraction and then back down to Kingman AZ for our lunch. The drive from our hotel out... More

Even if you are not doing a Route 66 road trip, this is a must stop and see. The manager, George is one of the friendliest individual's that we met along the entire road trip. If you are into historic Route 66, this is a no-brainer. The is a large gift shop and cold Route 66 root beer. DO NOT... More

Stopped here for photo ops, but went in and found out about the history of the buildings from the owner, very interesting and truly amazing. Fun place to stop, and cool inside, very cold drinks for the road. The store was used in the film universal soldier.

if You going east to west, that's where the ride really starts. 120 turns over the 9 miles of mountain road. Cool souvenir store, honest prices. There is RT66 soda on sale there. Place itself is an awesome spot for pictures. Definitely worth stopping by for an hour or so.

The setting is beautiful and quiet. We first discovered Cool Springs about 5 years ago and it just gets better. We visit Laughlin once or twice a year and always come up to take in the experience for another time. There is a little Route 66 museum and a special autographed and large record collection of Rolling Stones LP's. There... More

there is an outhouse restroom here but it was one of the cleanest I have ever used! (cleaner than some actual bathrooms!) Great photo opportunity with the old gas pumps and cool souvenirs inside.
