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.
