Ben's 2017 Route 66 Adventure

Day 13
Sunday, May 14

 

Tucumcari NM

Checking out of the Blue Swallow
  

As recommended by the Blue Swallow owners, my next stop would be the Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas New Mexico.
Avoid the obvious I-40/I-84 route, they said, in favor of State Route 104. Nice back country road with some fun twisties.

This isn't one of the twisties...

       

Approaching Las Vegas

 

Las Vegas NM

In Las Vegas (pretty obviously NOT Nevada!)

There's the plaza...            and there's The Plaza!
  

Lunch from across the plaza from The Plaza
   

Some of the plaza statuary
     

The Plaza Hotel

Click photo to see much more of the inside - Classic and historic!
