Attractions






Kingman is at the heart of the longest remaining stretch of Historic Route 66, some 157 miles.

The 52 miles (84km) between Kingman and the Colorado River at Topock is the original Mother Road. Predating the declaration of Route 66 in 1926, it was built for the stream of prospectors looking to stake a claim in the Oatman Gold Rush of 1902. It is representative of the Mother Road mentioned in John Steinbeck's "Grape's of Wrath" and best symbolizes Route 66 during the American Great Depression of the 1930's. By 1952, America’s love affair with big cars won over, and Route 66 was rerouted to the current alignment of I-40.

The 106 miles (170km) from Kingman to the end of Crookton Road near Ashfork is iconic 1950's-60's Route 66. This stretch is similar to what most American's remember from 1950's and 1960's family road trips out west to the Grand Canyon or California.
