Desert Sands Motel, Old Spanish Trail, US 80, Yuma, Arizona

Desert Sands Motel, old U.S. 80, Yuma, Arizona.

Drive the Old Spanish Trail, America’s most fascinating historic highway.


From Jacksonville, Florida, take US 90 to San Antonio, Texas; then US 290 (or US 90) to Van Horn, Texas; then US 80 to Boulevard, California; then US 80 or CA 94 to sunny San Diego; then jump into the Pacific and have a swell swim.


Here’s a map, if you need directions:
