The Black Mountains Range is the perfect backdrop for this old mining town that hasn’t changed much over the years. There are numerous historic buildings and photo opportunities including the Oatman Hotel where Clark Gable and Carol Lombard spent their honeymoon night. There are also great gift and craft shops lining the wood-clad sidewalks of the main street (Route 66), as well as a few places to eat and listen to live music.

Wild Burros

Wild Burros

Even with all Oatman has to offer, it’s the wild burros that really own the town, and steal the hearts of visitors… along with some carrots. The “wild” burros are the descendants of burros brought here by the miners and when no longer needed were turned loose. They wander the streets, stop traffic, and are cooperative for camera shots.
