Kingman, the heart of historic Route 66 and a hidden treasure of Arizona is only 70 miles from the Grand Canyon and is known as the Turquoise Capital of the world. The roots of Arizona are captured by the Historic Route 66 Museum, Army Airfield Museum, and the Mohave Museum of History and Arts that recount the travels on Route 66, depict the World War II era and the early days of railroading, mining and ranching. Make sure you stop at the Hackberry General Store, full of memorabilia from the Route 66 heydays and visit Bonelli House built in 1916.
With its close proximity to the Grand Canyon’s Skywalk and over 35 miles of walking trails winding through the rugged landscape, the great outdoors awaits you here in Kingman. Explore on foot, by horse or mountain bike. Historic charm, picturesque hiking, traditional eateries and breweries, and the allure of both the Grand Canyon and Route 66 combine to make Kingman a remarkable location.
