Tucumcari, New Mexico (along Historic Route 66)


This was a neat little town that’s still thriving along Historic Route 66. We drove through here about 25 miles an hour looking at everything. (There was very little traffic.) There are just so many “attractions” to see. These aren’t “tourist” towns in the sense of the way things have been built up for tourists on the East Coast. They are just simple little towns that attracted tourists in the early 1900s and they’ve retained the vintage charm.

We ate lunch at a place called “Restaurant.” (Actually, it was called the Pow Wow Restaurant and Lizard Lounge, but since the sign just said “Restaurant,” we decided to call it that because we thought it was incredibly funny.)

The mountain shown in this photo is actually the Tucumcari mountain. You can't miss it in the landscape as you're driving through this area!
