"Flagstaff AZ and don't forget Winona" - I know, it sounds better when Nat King Cole sings it.

Seligman, AZ is THE route 66 town. Lots of collectibles and nice stuff. Continue to Kingman, AZ via Peach Springs. Just before Peach Springs you can discover Grand Canyon Caverns. Peach Springs is the "capitol" of the Hualapai indian reservation with the famous Skywalk glass platform stretching out over Grand Canyon West. And from Peach Springs you can drive down (truck recommended and permit required) Diamond Creek road to get to the Colorado. This is the only way to get down to the Colorado river other than by hiking, mule, horse or chopper. And if one is good on foot the Havasupai Indian Reservation with a tent campground within the Grand Canyon can be reached from Hualapai Hilltop. Just a short ride to the Hilltop parking from route 66 before you reach Grand Canyon Caverns. Down in this reservation you can enjoy beautiful turquoise waterfalls of the Supai river which drains into the Colorado. This indian reservation has the only mule train served post office. Secret: they also offer chopper flights and a lodge down at Supai.

Not as much as you would hope. Flagstaff is a good destination, but from the their to San Bernardino it is pretty dissolute with a few towns trying to make a tourist attraction. They have not achieved much success. San Bernardino has an historic café, which serves OK food, but you are not getting an RV near it. From San Bernardino to Santa Monica the route takes many different twists and turns and you can get off route very easy. The route is not passable for RV's most of the way to Santa Monica. Santa Monica is fun, but you are not getting an RV within miles of it.
The song is better than the route.

If you don't mind traveling a little further east on 66, and are an Eagles fan.....there is a great photo op in Winslow Arizona........standin on the corner.

My friend (and I use the term loosely) sent me a pic of him there last year, just rubbing it in. They even have the girl in the flatbed Ford.

Have fun, and "Take It Easy".

Check this site out.

The Mother Road: Historic Route 66 - Books, Maps, ...

There was a "Modern Marvels" episode recently on the history and current route of Rout 66. It seems there are some very interesting sections and some not so interesting sections. I warn to drive as much of the entire route from Chicago to Santa Monica, but the wife is not on board.

Oatman,AZ is a small historical mining hamlet , where burros roam the streets. It is definitely worth visiting......However....the road from Kingman south is a snake so don 't even think of taking an RV. We stayed in Kingman and took our vehicle. And parking an RV in Oatman would be chancy, I would think.
