Since the interstates went in across the country in the 1960s, Route 66 was delegated to a secondary status. Now it is mostly European tourists wanting to see America.
Seligman, Arizona is the epitome of a kitschy tourist stop along Route 66. The business that are in the small town live off of the folks who are passing through.
The highlight is Delgadillo’s Snow Cap Ice Cream Stand. Among their numerous highlights is an old car that they have modified to bounce up and down as you go down the street, and they were more than happy to give us a quick ride through town.
Anytime I am anywhere near Seligman, Arizona I make a point of stopping in, it is touristy and hokey, but well worth the visit.
