You’ll Never Guess What’s Hiding In This Small Town Arizona Burger King
One of the most surprising and rewarding things to find when traveling is a hidden monument or piece of art in a place you otherwise wouldn’t expect. An itty bitty chapel on the side of the road. A seasonal attraction inside a hotel. A museum attached to a restaurant. It feels like a little secret, like something that can only be seen by people willing to put in the effort to explore the world around them.
Today, we’re going to take at one fast food restaurant located in a tiny northern Arizona town that is hiding a nice gem.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
You can find the Navajo Code Talker Display inside the Kayenta Burger King, located near the junction of Highways 160 and 163. See this map for the location.
