Started at Oatman for a fun stop on Route 66. Burros are very friendly 😍 The gunfighters were very entertaining! I love they take donations received after the gunfights are given to the Shriners Children Hospitals, to date over $91,000. Stopped in at the Oatman...More

The old 66 route over the mountain. Lots of switchbacks, narrow road, most without guard rails - keep both hands on the wheel. Very scenic but hard to imagine this was the best route for the Mother Road to get across this part of Arizona?...More

What a beautiful and scary drive. Off the beaten path and a great part of Route 66. Make sure your tank is full and stay in your lane what views and what a drive. Loved it

Lots of twists and turns and beautiful scenery. So much of the dessert is in bloom and it was beautiful. Everywhere you look the colors just keep changing. Well worth the slow dive.

This is a bucket list item. The drive from Kingman to Oatman is a fabulous scenic adventure. Right out of the first Cars movie (literally). Take it slow. Nail biter, sure. Don't believe the reviews that say "treacherous" though. Only if you drive faster than...More

Drive carefully around these sweeping bends from Oatman through Sitgreaves Pass. This country is so rugged, reminiscent of movie scenes from the wild west, but oh so beautiful. Stunning vistas, it's really worth the diversion from the interstate. This is original Route 66 and a...More

The view from Kingman in the morning is stunning. It also puts the sun behind you for better photo ops.

If you make your trip from Kingman and go over the pass, it means you are going to go through Oatman and you will want to stop there. However if you just pass through Oatman and go down to 95 business through Bullhead to 163... More

I am unsure of where you are headed for in the Grand Canyon, but Oatman appears to be out of the way as Oatman is halfway between Kingman and the CA border. From the Grand Canyon you could head south toward I-40 and... More
