    My route 66 favorite place is the Blue Swallow motel in Tucumcari, New Mexico.
    It has been restored as it was in the 1940s, has a great history, and is now operated by a dedicated couple.

    After a rough day on the road (mechanical trouble on my buddies bike) and 55 mph headwinds (riding motorcycles) the Wigwam motel in Holbrook, AZ was a very cool sight!

  4. Ralph Swain says:

    There are many but La Posada in Winslow, AZ the former Harvey House now fully restored.

    Jeff, I remember begging my mom as a kid to stay at the wigwam! We camped at the KOA instead. Someday, if it’s still there.

    One of my favorite places along Route 66 is the Slovenian Union of America Heritage Museum in Joliet. The organization was founded in 1926! One of many Slovenian delicacies served at cultural events is Potica from Rocky Mountain Potica. For more information about the museum visit or email
