Oatman is a former mining town in the Black Mountains of Mohave County, Arizona. Located at an elevation of 2,710 feet (830 m).
Oatman has undergone a renaissance of sorts in recent years thanks to burgeoning worldwide interest in Route 66 and the explosive growth of the nearby gaming town of Laughlin which promotes visits to the town
Laughlin is the third most visited casino and resort destination in the state after Las Vegas and Reno, and is one of the top five destinations for American RV enthusiasts.
Laughlin is advertised as a family-friendly destination. Being located on the river, it emphasizes outdoor and family activities. Many of the casinos that line the Colorado River are linked by an unofficial pedestrian thoroughfare known as the Laughlin Riverwalk.
24 hours a day people are just playing at the casino and loosing all their money. I have not been able to take that picture on your left because it was only old guys playing, but just for fun I have decided to post this one!!!
In 1938, founder Roy Crowl opened Roy’s as a gas and service station along the legendary U.S. Highway 66, in Amboy. At the time, Route 66 was “The Mother Road” and “Main Street of America” – the primary east-west highway artery crossing the nation from Chicago through the Southwest to Los Angeles. The construction of Roy’s coincided with a Route 66 realignment through Mountain Springs Summit, bypassing Goffs to directly connect Needles and Essex, and west to Amboy. Amboy was once a major stop along famous Route 66 but has seen much lower visitation since the opening of Interstate 40 to the north in 1973. Amboy is home to the famous Roy’s Motel and Cafe, a Route 66 landmark.
Roy’s Cafe: Roy’s is a landmark on the above Route and attracts many photographers and visitors. Part of the lure is the huge sign.
Palm Spring is at the east of the San Jacinto mountains
The Palm Springs area is unique, as the wind blows hard enough to power the windmills 300 days a year.
There is 3,100 windmills at the wind farm, which generates enough electricity (600-900 megawatts of power) to power the entire city of Palm Springs and some of the surrounding area.
