This General Store On Arizona’s Route 66 Will Make You Long For The Good Ol’ Days
There are so many incredible things to see along Route 66, that you might not know where to start. There are attractions that seem a bit odd, iconic restaurants, and abandoned sites that will remind you of the lives that once blossomed along this old highway.
We’re pretty lucky, however, to have many of these places still standing, still operating, or, in some cases, finding a new life. That last part just happens to be the case for one little gas station turned store and museum in the tiny town of Hackberry, which sits less than 30 miles from Kingman.
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/
The Hackberry General Store is located 27 miles northeast of Kingman at 11255 East Route 66 in Hackberry. It is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
