Coversations/Things we learned:
This is a great stop when driving through the area to see Meteor Crater and Petrified National Park. For music enthusiasts, a picture at the “Standing on the Corner Park” right by the historical Route 66 is a must. There are also nice and cozy restaurants and ice cream shops along Route 66 and across from the park.
