The Crazy One-Of-A-Kind Store You’ll Only Find In Arizona
It’s probably safe to say Route 66 can be a pretty weird drive. You’ll spot kitschy motels, odd tourist traps, magnificent views, and diners dedicated to yesteryear. Sitting between all of those are souvenir shops galore, each one touting Route 66 themed trinkets and state-related merchandise. While a vast majority of these shops aren’t discernible from one to the next, there is at least one here in Arizona that we think you won’t forget for a long time.
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/
