...Oatman, Arizona
funkier than funky

Oatman is nestled somewhere in the hills just west of Kingman. Its atmosphere is a pleasant, fun combination comprising a little bit of biker, a little bit of cowboy, a little bit of tourist, a lotta dust, and buildings older than dirt

Its burro population may be higher than its people population, but that's what's it's known for....the sweet, perfectly tamed donkeys that roam the streets and block cars trying to get through on the only street in town and gently beg for carrots.

It's an experience you should encounter if only for an hour or so. You can take a 10-mile dirt road in from the north, or take the old Route 66 highway from the south.
