Route 66 – (2018 Trip) – Day 17 – Needles, CA. to Rialto, CA.

Today seen us travel 489km’s ( 303.85 miles), our destintation for the day was Needles, California.

Well Needdles is certiainly a warm place to stay. It was still 46C at 17:45. Needless to say we stayed in the air cone as much as possible after a swim to cool down.

With the morning dawning we has the following tourity 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 tht has bee turned into a tourist spot. For the most part it is pretty good and it’s worth the visit.
