Hualapai capital in Route 66 guide

Hualapai Tourism a part of interactive travel guide programThe capital of the Hualapai Nation, Peach Springs, Ariz., is located on the longest remaining portion of Historic Route 66 and has been featured in the Historic Route 66 Association of Arizona’s new interactive travel guide the “Arizona Route 66 Passport.” The program encourages travelers to experience all the “Mother Road” has to offer. Visitors collect stamps from the Route 66 communities and attractions in order to learn about the area and receive rewards upon completion.

Peach Springs is a unique location on Route 66 because it is engrained with Native American culture and acts as a gateway for many of the Hualapai Tourism’s products including the only one-day Grand Canyon whitewater rafting trip, Hualapai River Runners, and Hualapai Lodge. Peach Springs is also the starting point for off-road tours, hiking, fishing and hunting permitted by the tribe. Peach Springs is two hours from the Hualapai’s Grand Canyon West, home of the Grand Canyon Skywalk, which too is located on the reservation and included in the Passport.
