The Historic Route 66 National Back Country Byway begins five miles south of Kingman at the McConnico exit off Interstate 40. To begin at the southern end, exit off Interstate 40 at the Topock/Golden Shores.
A beautiful desert stretch of Historic Route 66, Oatman Road begins south of the town of Kingman. It is a winding two-lane road that passes through 42 miles of Arizona's gorgeous desert terrain.
This remarkable setting, combined with the byway's exciting Western history, creates an feeling of the Old West that cannot be ignored. Several movies, including "How the West Was Won" and "Edge of Eternity," were filmed on location in Oatman, taking advantage of the town's picturesque street scene.
