Route 66

If you’re looking for great displays of neon signs, mom-and-pop motels in the middle of nowhere, or kitschy Americana, do as the song says and “get your kicks on Route 66.”

Meteor Crater

Between Winslow and Winona, three miles east of Two Guns and six miles south of I-40 exit 233, sits Meteor Crater (928/289-5898, daily, $18), Arizona’s second-most-distinctive hole in the ground. Formed by a meteorite some 50,000 years ago and measuring 550 feet deep and nearly a mile across, the crater is a privately owned tourist attraction. The Astronaut Wall of Fame plays up the crater’s resemblance to the surface of the moon (Apollo moon-walkers practiced here). You can’t climb down into it, but (weather permitting) you can join a guided rim tour, walking a half mile there and back across the desert to gaze down into the crater.
