Amboy is located in southern Califoria in San Bernardino County in the Mojave Desert. It is west of Needles and east of Ludlow on the historic Route 66.
Amboy was once an important stop on Route 66. The opening of I-40, north of Route 66 in 1973, however, lowered the number of visitors coming into the community.
There are only about 10 surviving buildings in Amboy today. The population is less than 20. Some people estimate the population to be about 4. Others estimate the population to be closer to 8, all of whom are male.
Roy’s Motel and Cafe is about the only thing left in Amboy.
