Sometimes you just need a road trip, and what better road to travel than Route 66, America's Mother Road? Just before you hit the border of California and Nevada, you'll find Kingman, Arizona. Check into one of the Kingman hotels and spend a few days soaking up the historical significance of Route 66.
Start your day by taking in the glorious red and orange desert sunrise, then visit the Arizona Route 66 Museum and step back in time to the heyday of the road trip. Want more history? The town is dotted with over 20 historic buildings you can visit. Check out the Old Red Schoolhouse, The Railway Depot, Hotel Beale, and the famous Bonelli House, all of which were built between 1890 and 1900. Hotels in Kingman are located 45 minutes from The Colorado River, so you can take a day and go river rafting. Before you get back on the road, spend a day visiting the Grand Canyon just over an hour east of Kingman. You're also only about an hour away from Las Vegas, Mojave National Preserve, and Lake Havasu City, so there will definitely be something around to explore.
When it's time to eat, Mexican food is king in Arizona, and the New Kingman-Butler area has spicy tacos and mesquite-grilled chicken that's to die for. You can grab fast Mexican food almost everywhere, but if you are in the mood for steakhouse classics, choose from several restaurants along the historic portion of Route 66. Kingman hotel deals will leave you plenty of funds for a big steak dinner. To cap off a great dinner, there's no need to go far. Just off Route 66, you can find distilleries making vodka and rum spirits or wineries for wine tasting.
