Historic Route 66 offers travelers miles of an old west feel.
Driving along this well traveled route is a far cry from the freeways and highways most of us travel everyday. The road is basically a two lane highway that curves in and out of little towns and bigger cities.



One special town to explore on this historic road is the ghost town of Oatman, Arizona. This ghost town is inhabited by friendly people. Just make sure while visiting the town that you watch out for gunfighters.

When driving through you could be stopped while a tour bus is being held up at gun point, a gunfight is going in the middle of the street, or a wedding is taking place in the middle of town. Yes, traffic is stopped while the bride and groom say their vows.
The scenery is beautiful along the "Mother Road" as 66 is often referred too. Oatman dates back to the 1800's.The area, once used by the U.S. Calvary as a connecting road from the town of Kingman to Fort Mohave takes you through the scenic Black Mountains.

Those that live in Oatman run the restaurants and shops of the town. Yes, here you can fill up, no there is no gas station, but you will find a good meal and maybe a special item to take home.

You will not find a McDonald's or Starbuck's, in this town, but you will find something that really no other towns have, wild burros roaming the street. These burros are seeking out a friendly visitor with a handout. Most shops sell carrots to feed their hunger.

As you walk the wooden sidewalks it will take you back to the days of watching famous cowboys on TV.

It is always fun to visit Oatman during the annual Bed Races and the Sidewalk Egg Fry's. 
This popular town is seen by many each year expecting to take in a gunfight, lunch and a look at the burros. It is 2 hours and 30 minutes from Las Vegas, Nevada and 3 hours and 45 minutes from Phoenix, Arizona.

Oatman is just a "short piece" down the road from Laughlin, Nevada!
