Driving from Kingman, Arizona on old Route 66 will take you on a scenic route through the Black Mountains. Cool Springs is a classic rest stop along the old highway, no longer a gas station, just a flash-back façade to a romanticized time during the mid-20th-century.

Cool Springs owes its existence to Route 66, as old as the highway. “Route 66 is the most celebrated of the old US highways, and the Cool Springs area is perhaps the most spectacular and unique stretch of the Mother Road to be found anywhere between Chicago and Santa Monica; a ‘must-see’ for the adventuresome automobile enthusiast or historian.” Click here to read more about the history of Cool Springs.

It was a pleasant surprise to find Cool Springs — It’s cool!
