Fodor's Review

The Powerhouse building is a great first stop for visitors. The Kingman Visitor Center (928/753–6106 or 866/427–7866 www.gokingman.com), in a converted 1907 electrical plant, has the usual brochures to acquaint you with local attractions. Pick up a walking-tour map, which highlights more than two dozen historic sights, including Locomotive Park—home to the 1928 steam locomotive Engine No. 3759.

Inside the visitor center, the Powerhouse Route 66 Museum (928/753–9889 $4, includes admission to the Bonelli House and the Mohave Museum of History and Arts) provides a nostalgic look at the evolution of the famous route that started as a footpath followed by prehistoric Indians and evolved into a length of pavement that reached from Chicago, Illinois, to Santa Monica, California. Memory Lane, also inside the Powerhouse, is a store crammed with kitschy souvenirs.

The first weekend of May each year, the Historic Route 66 Association of Arizona holds the three-day Route 66 Fun Run, a 40-mile drive that attracts classic-car buffs. Admission to the Historic Route 66 Museum also includes a visit to the nearby Mohave Museum of History and Arts and the Bonelli House.
