Winslow

THE EAGLES POPULARIZED WINSLOW BY “STANDIN’ ON A CORNER” IN THEIR SONG TAKE IT EASY. BUT BESIDES A GREAT PHOTO OPP INSPIRED BY THE SONG, THE NEARBY ANCIENT RUINS, HISTORICAL OBJECTS, AND AN ARCHITECTURAL GEM OF A HOTEL SHOULD BE ON YOUR LIST OF WINSLOW SITES TO SEE.

Right Now

Winslow has always been an important stop on Route 66, first popular with railroad travelers, and now with motorists and motorcyclists.

Whistling a tune known the world over is what you do when you’re at Winslow’s Standin’ On a Corner Park, which capitalizes on the song’s multi-decade fame. In the same block you’ll find the Old Trails Museum which houses memorabilia – much of it donated by citizens – that tells the history of a town shaped by American Indians and Western pioneers.

Considered among the finest trackside hotels, La Posada was designed by Fred Harvey Company architect Mary Jane Colter for the Santa Fe Railroad. Stepping into this historic hacienda-style masterpiece, with its red-tiled roof, public gardens, and graceful arches, is like stepping back to a more elegant time. The restored rooms – graced by guests such as Amelia Earhart, Clark Gable, Will Rogers, and Jane Russel – feature Ponderosa Pine beds, Mexican tile, and Zapotec rugs. The on-site restaurant, the Turquoise Room, is considered one of the finest restaurants in the Four Corners region.

Hiking enthusiasts, you will want to head just north of town to Homolovi State Park, where you can walk the trails around archaeological sites and ponder the petroglyphs of the Hopi ancestors that lived in the region until AD 1400.
