The Alluring Park Along Route 66 That’s Full Of Unexpected And Ancient Beauty

Geological wonders thrive in the Arizona horizon. Iconic formations like the Monument Valley mittens, the Grand Canyon’s depths, and Sedona’s striking red formations all help define our state’s landscape. Another place rich in geological (and historic) beauty is our very own Petrified Forest National Park.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Petrified Forest National Park is located 26 miles east of Holbrook along Interstate 40. You can find details about visiting on the National Park’s website.
