Route 66 Winslow to Flagstaff

Details:



Although parts of Route 66 have been covered or bypassed by faster freeway routes, there are still sections to be traveled across northern Arizona. You'll be exploring a significant part of American history along the way. This section begins where the Eagles famous song finds you "Standin' on the Corner" in Winslow, Arizona and continues to Flagstaff. Be sure to cruise around Winslow and check out Earl's Motor Court, a classic Route 66 motel. If time allows, you can backtrack to Holbrook and see the Wigwam Motel with its teepee shaped buildings. Winslow is also home to the beautifully restored La Posada Hotel, one of the original Harvey Houses. 

An original stretch of Route 66 angles off from the 1800 block of West 3rd Street and continues for about two miles to the west. Leaving Winslow, the route is covered by I-40 until visitors approach Meteor Crater but you'll still be able to enjoy the wide open scenery iconic to this historic road. Take a detour to Meteor Crater and you'll find another 2-mile drivable section of the original road. 

Watch for the ghost town of Two Guns. The old bridge across Canyon Diablo remains as a testament to the glory days of the route. Enjoy the ride until Exit 204 on I-40. Here, you rejoin Route 66 all the way through Flagstaff. Vintage motels line the road side by side with more modern facilities. Be sure to stop in downtown Flagstaff at the Visitor Center located in the historic Amtrak Station. Then take a walk around the square for a taste of Americana or an authentic diner-style meal.
