This Quirky Motel Is An Iconic Stop Along Arizona’s Route 66
The old Route 66 is the home to American kitsch. There are few places you will find unbelievable sights like dinosaurs scattered along town streets, a replica of the fort from the 1960s show F Troop, and a giant Easter Island-style head just sitting along the highway. Arizona has quite a few of those places still standing and serving customers since the highway’s heyday. One Route 66 icon in particular truly stands out from the rest.
