If you’ve enjoyed your visit to the museum you will want to buy a souvenir perhaps, and one more reasonably priced (and easier to get home) than one of the classic cars. The shop has a large collection of Route 66 related items, including t-shirts and other clothing, model cars, shot and beer glasses, various signs and of course model cars. We only bought a few postcards but I enjoyed browsing around.
It’s also worth a browse to see the additional museum items displayed here. I particularly liked some of the old photos of the road at the height of its significance.
There’s also a small café but we didn’t have anything here. I did however make use of what I have learned to call when in the US the “bathroom”, and I loved the light switches there, so just had to take a photo – photo three.

Many divers and swimmers flock to the town of Santa Maria during the summer months. This is not the most ideal place in the world to dive - but considering it's in the middle of a desert it's the closest place to practice for many people in the Southwest. Blue hole is a bell shaped spring that reaches a depth of 81 feet, use your dive tables though because the town is at 4000 feet elevation. A grate covers a hole in the bottom as several divers have lost their lives by diving too deep. They get sucked into the current of the underground river that flows beneath - not a pleasant way to perish.
Equipment: Never dived before - so you probably should know what you need better than I do. You do however need a permit from city hall to dive - this I do know.
