After a couple days in Las Vegas, make a run for the border. The Arizona border, that is. It’s about 250 miles from Sin City to Arizona’s favorite crunchy college-meets-ski town, Flagstaff, your destination for the night.

When the sun goes down and the stars come out, you’ll feel the true Wild West spirit. Spend a night under the velvet sky, at Bonnie and John’s simple place, Sheps Miners Inn & Yesterday’s. It offers plain, but cozy, adobe-walled rooms with squeaking mattresses behind the onsite restaurant and Western saloon. Even if you don’t stay the night, Yesterday’s is worth a visit for hearty American grub, international beers and toe-tapping live music nightly in a creaky wooden floor, vintage gas pumps and hand-painted mural environment.

If Angel is around, he’s usually happy to regale you with stories about the Dust Bowl era. He’s seen it all. Angel’s madcap brother Juan used to rule prankishly supreme over the Snow Cap Drive-In, a Route 66 burger joint that’s been frying beef patties since before I-40 made traffic along the Mother Road nearly extinct.
