Recently we took a day trip from Las Vegas to Oatman, AZ. We also traveled Route 66 in Oatman to Kingman, AZ before heading back to Las Vegas. Oatman is a unique town that the entire family loved. We went just before Halloween, so the town had plenty of spooky decorations that the kids enjoyed. Oatman isn't a big town, but it has a lot to explore. Fun gifts shops, Burros to feed, and multiple dining options await. If you're heading to Oatman we recommend taking Route 66 to Kingman. The drive between the two towns on Route 66 is spectacular.

This is a must see attraction that feels like a step back in time. When traveling to Oatman, follow the paved roads and not your GPS. Some GPS systems will lead you off the payment and down miles of dirt road, although the shortest route, this is not the most desirable. Walking down the streets of Oatman, is like a throw back in time. Enjoy the many shops, good eats, friendly patrons and great visions of an old town. Traveling down the street you will be sharing the road with the towns original folks, yes the Donkey. The Donkey is the original town folk that still today control the traffic flow, either driving or walking, you are sure to encounter one or two of them.

even though it was fall season we had a blast looking through the stores that were open and all the antiques they had. we had to stop to get into town because the donkeys were blocking the road which gave us a laugh. One of them stuck its head through the window and was looking for food I am sure

Unique ghost town complete with burros roaming the street! The stores are the original buildings & have anything you could want. Great for jewelry shopping. Oatman Hotel is where Clark Gable & Carole Lombard stayed on their honeymoon. Can see the room where they stayed. Restaurant is decorated with dollar bills from all over. I recommend the burro ears as a bar snack. Enough to share or eat yourself. They are a fried potato slice with your choice of dipping sauce. The other shops & stores are great to go through & visit with owners or workers. All shop employees were very friendly & courteous. They were full of good information about the area.
