When my daughter was very little we drove down Route 66, all the way from Chicago to Los Angeles. That’s when I first got a taste of Arizona.
I have not driven then whole stretch of Route 66 after that one time, but the Arizona part I’ve driven a few times.
I love the old murals, the people, the landscape, history, culture, and charming restaurants along the road. Along with the intense beauty of the nature in general, in Arizona, I started to do more research, and seriously think about eventually settling down here.
I narrowed down the area I wanted to live in, based on land prices, water, gardening seasons, low crime rates, year round temperatures (I like some snow in the winter,) local culture/people, and appealing nature. I took the photos in this post in the beginning of June, when I took my daughter to see the property I choose, along with enjoying the historical Route 66. I hope you enjoyed the taste of Route 66! Have you driven this road yourself? If so, I’d love to hear about how you experienced it! The weekend is almost here! I sure hope you’re having a great week so far 🙂
