Today seen us travel 489km’s ( 303.85 miles), our destination for the day was Needles, California.
Well Needles is certainly a warm place to stay. It was still 46C at 17:45. Needless to say we stayed in the air conditioning as much as possible after a swim to cool down.
With the morning dawning we has the following touristy things planned today:
- Roy’s motel and Café, Amboy
- Ludlow Café, Ludlow
- Bagdad Café, Bagdad.
- Calico (Ghost Town)
- Barstow Route 66 Mother Road Museum, Barstow
- California Route 66 Museum, Victorville.
The “ghost town” is based around an old mining town that has bee turned into a tourist spot. For the most part it is pretty good and it’s worth the visit.
