We drove from Vegas to visit this old western town. It was about a 2 hour drive and we’re SO glad we made the trip. It’s just a small little town with a couple blocks of gift stores and a couple restaurants. But the highlight...More

We visited Oatman whilst road tripping on Route 66. Approached Oatman from Kingman via the Golden Valley mountain pass - what an experience that was! Real twisty mountain road with fantastic views - better than any coaster at Disney! Arrived in Oatman on a very...More
