The Standin’ on A Corner Park
It’s a rare person who has not heard the famous line from the Eagles first hit single, Take It Easy. The song has the lyric “standin’ on a corner in Winslow Arizona, such a fine site to see, it’s a girl my lord in a flatbed Ford, slowin’ down to take a look at me.”! Many are the visitors who come from far and wide to stand and take advantage of the photo opportunity, on the most famous “corner” of Historic Route 66.
La Posada Hotel
Undisputedly a world renowned American treasure, this special place is considered to be the last of the great trackside hotels.

Built in 1929, this legendary oasis is the masterpiece of Mary Jane Colter, chief architect for the Fred Harvey Company and one of America’s most important female designers. A recent restoration has brought the hotel back to its former comfort and grandeur. Enjoyed by people from around the world, whether you stay overnight or not, this beautiful and relaxing resort most definitely a place not be missed.
