Arizona’s Historical Route 66 has great places to propose to your sweetheart in Kingman AZ, the Heart of Route 66, and only 32 miles away is Valentine, AZ. Arizona’s portion of Route 66 had early beginnings when in 1851 Captain Lorenzo Sitgreaves explored territory taken from Mexico. Later in 1857, Lt. Edward Beale surveyed a wagon trail to link Arkansas and California.

Still standing along Route 66 is the main structure of the Hualapai Indian Day School established by President McKinley in 1898. In 1910, the township near the school and the school site was renamed Valentine, after Robert G. Valentine, who had been the Commissioner of Indian Affairs from 1909 to 1912. Just down the road, is the Valentine Post Office where you can postmark a letter to your sweetheart. Next door is the Keepers of the Wild sanctuary for those who love animals. All in all, some sweet places for romance.
