I thought we had to get out of town and drive miles to end to get the feeling of the historic route. Go out of our way (route 40), delay our Grand Canyon trip in half an hour, to get the feeling for that historic route.
But, no, it goes right through Kingman, and they acutally pride themselves in letting others know that they are the heart of it.
So I figure we can drive up to a local diner for dinner. I looked on the website quoted above, and found several places for all kinds of tastes. They do have several national chains, and several western chains. But they also have local flavors, so we went for that.
