Adventures & Good Pie

Grand Canyon Caverns & Inn, located about 20 miles west of Seligman, Arizona on Route 66 has been providing travelers with memorable adventures since 1927. With the bypass of Route 66 in 1978, the resort complex mirrored the highway and began a slow fade. Now, however, the tarnished old gem has been given a bit of polish and once again the caverns complex is a destination for legions of travelers.

The motel built in 1963 has been refurbished from rooms to pool, and you can even choose to spend an evening in the quietest (and darkest) motel room in the world two hundred feet below the ground. The restaurant has been restored and appears as it did more than sixty years ago. As a bonus you can now enjoy good food, including superb pie, above ground or below in the Caverns Groto restaurant. The caverns can be explored on wheel chair accessible trails, or for the adventuresome, with a bit of spelunking. To ensure that your visit is unforgettable there is miniature golf, forested hiking trails, disc golf, an award winning RV park, and ample adult libations in two lounges.

The caverns hearken to the era of I Like Ike buttons and tail fins. Like Route 66 itself, it has become a living time capsule, a a tangible link to another time.

Jim Hinckley's America is a grand adventure on the back roads and two lane highways. It is an odyssey seasoned with fascinating people, and memory making discoveries. As made evident by the publication of fourteen books on subjects as diverse as diverse as Ghost Towns of the Southwest, The Illustrated History of the Checker Cab Manufacturing Company, Travel Route 66, Backroads of Arizona, and The Route 66 Encyclopedia, I enjoy sharing adventures and helping people plan for their own memory making journeys.

Thank you, shared adventures are the best adventures.
