Wikieup Trading Post and Restaurant

Wikieup is a minuscule self-governing town located on U.S. Route 93 in Mohave County, Arizona. It is located about 124 miles northwest of Phoenix.  It is also known as the "rattlesnake capital of Arizona".  With around 130 people living there, the main place to get food, shop, gifts, and motel room is at the Wikieup Trading Post and Restaurant.  Many of the other places to eat or stay at have closed their doors and sit abandoned.

Inside the trading post to right and left is where the shops are located.  They have a variety of articles sold in each area such as jewelry, clothes, purses, interesting trinkets, food, Native American and Arizona items.  To the right as you walk in the door, is the restaurant.  Sharon and I ended up having lunch there.  My grilled ham and cheese sandwich was delicious, but the fries were even better.  After lunch, we just had to shop.  We found some fun items to buy and headed out.  Before leaving town, we did some urban exploration and took pictures of the town's unusual rocket sign.


  1. I wish there were more places like this, because it was simply too amazing for words. I came here with my boyfriend the other night, and it was absolutely fabulous. The use of wood throughout the venue New York adds a very warm and inviting feel to venue.
