Amboy, California

A ghost town on Route 66 in eastern California

Published May 14th, 2024


Back in summer of 2021, I drove the majority of Route 66 (just skipping the Chicago & LA sections). One of my favorite places I visited on the route is Amboy - a ghost town in eastern California with a population of four people as of 2010. It has a post office, church and a cafe + gas station called Roy's Cafe. The neon signage of Roy's is one of the most iconic scenes on Route 66, and absolutely one of my favorite places I've ever photographed. Enjoy the series!
