Think you’re going to be standing on the corner in Winslow sometime in the near future? There’s actually quite a few things to do in the area if you know where to look. One example: sitting less than 30 minutes away from the town (or 45 minutes from Flagstaff), Arizona’s Meteor Crater is one impressive sight and worth a visit if you like space and history.
Meteor Crater is located about 26 miles west of Winslow, just off the old Route 66. Driving directions from Winslow can be found on this link via Google Maps. Details for your visit can be found on their website, meteorcrater.com.
