Day Trip to Winslow - Any suggestions?

Looking for any suggestions on things to do for the day in Winslow. Will be coming back from Canyone De Chelly and thinking of staying in Winslow for the night and doing something the next day before heading back to Phoenix.

Definitely stop by historic La Posada Hotel - lunch or dinner at their Turquiose Room is delicious. Of course, you will also need to stand on The Corner! Visit Petrified Forest National Park on your way from CdC. Unfortunately Homolovi State Park has fallen to the budget ax and is now closed.

Try to spend the night at La Posada.

http://www.laposada.org/

It's an old historic hotel. There's a self guided tour around the hotel with an explanation of some of the art displayed. A train runs right in the back of the hotel so if train noises bother you be sure and ask for a quiet room in the front. This is one of the Harvey Girl hotels and was built by a famous architecht, Mary Elizabeth Jane Colter. In case you aren't familiar with her, here's a link

The food and service at the hotel is good also which is a blessing since there isn't much else in town.

Definitely go down and stand "on the corner" as previously suggested and have your picture taken. Usually you can hear the song playing from a nearby store while there. Have a wonderful time!
