Route 66 New Mexico - Motel Safari, Cavender’s Boot City, U-Drop Inn, Tower Station


We woke up in Tucumcari, which is truly a town steeped in Route 66. We were at the marvelous Motel Safari, which at first glance looks like any U-shaped motor court from the early post-war period. The old Ford Galaxie was the first hint it was different, the warm welcome from the owner was the second. The rooms were spotless, the beds were terrific and there were nice retro touches.
