Sometimes we just need to get away for a little bit… even if it’s just for a day or even half a day. My sister and I decided to check out Kingman for the day and we actually had a lot of fun!
Kingman is in Arizona, it’s a cute little town with some cool things to check out. It’s less than a 2 hour drive from Las Vegas. On the way you can also stop by Hoover Dam! We didn’t have enough time that day so we weren’t able to… but I definitely recommend checking out the dam as well.

If you’ve seen the Pixar movie Cars, this town looks exactly out of that movie! There are old, vintage cars on display everywhere! There’s a few museums around the town, all of which are very cheap. We checked out the Route 66 museum. It was pretty cool to see and read the history of Route 66. It will take you about 30 minutes to an hour to go through the whole museum. At the end there’s an automotive museum as well, included in the Route 66 museum ticket price.
Across the street from the Route 66 Museum is the Locomotive Park. You can snap some cool photos of the trains there! We also got lucky and saw an actual train passing by.
There’s also a really cute diner close to the museum. Another great spot for some Instagram photos!
If you’re looking for a quick little day trip… I do recommend checking out Kingman!
