I loved the remains of the old hotels and restaurants. They are reminiscent of a life when families took long road trips. Kids got excited about swimming in the hotel pool, mom’s got a break from cooking and cleaning and Dad’s got to shed their ties and white shirts for Bermuda shorts and crazy shirts. It is a shame that these great buildings are falling by the way side. They have so much character, with many stories to tell. I hope that they are saved before they crumble, so the next generation of kids can swim in their pools and the parents can have a cocktail under the neon lights.
