Many folks know about the ‘Standing on the Corner’ park, and some folks don’t!

Heading west on Route 66 – you would have to go down Third Street for a bit and then turn around (left) and go to Second Street and head back east.

The GIANT Route 66 logo in the middle of the intersection would be a dead giveaway you are here!

This is a very active intersection in Winslow when it comes to Route 66.
On the NW corner is the ‘Standing on the Corner’ park, complete with a statue you can take a picture with, a mural on the wall showing a ‘blonde haired girl in a flat bed Ford…’ and parked on the street – is a red flat bed Ford!
On the NE corner is the On the Corner – Route 66 Gift Shop. Stop in!!! Lots of tourists browsing and buying gifts and the owners are woderful people who know a lot about Route 66 history in Winslow.
On the SW corner is an old bank which is slated to be rehabbed into an actual working Soda Shop with the old pull type fountains!

Winslow is a great little stop for Route 66 travelers.
