I know it is a bit silly but we are here at Winslow. Why not stop and visit a "famous" corner?
In 1977, the year I graduated from high school, the Eagles released a song that made Winslow known all over the country to people of my age. The song "Take it easy" was a favorite of mine. Of course, as we drove into town, the song was playing.
Winslow has made it clear that they appreciate the song and those who come to town because of that song.
They also will try to get you to spend some money if they can. Two of the other corners are stores and the third is a restaurant.
It was fun but we are hungry. Just down the block was a great restaurant. RelicRoad Brewing Company not only had a wide selection of arizona craft beers and really good sandwiches.
After lunch we walked a great park. It was just a block south of route 66.
Notice that the information about the Navajo People referenced the trail back from Fort Sumner area. We did not realize that they were coming back to this area. We love learning about history this way.
