The American Southwest: I've always been so attracted to that region of the United States. It's the place that takes us back to the time of diners, neon signs, vintage cars, and more. After stumbling upon a photo of the Teepee Curios neon sign on a travel magazine, I was entranced and eager to find out where this neon sign could possibly be. With research, I found Tucumcari, New Mexico, a little sleepy town on Route 66. It soon became part of my travel bucket list. After I did more research and convinced my parent...
