Visiting the Meteor Crater in Arizona was part of our Road trip through the states of California, Nevada, Utah and Arizona. Meteor Crater is perhaps the best-known example of a small impact crater on the Earth. The crater was created about 50,000 years ago when...More

A little pricey but worth it. It is indeed a big hole in the ground, but very interesting none the less. It's so big it messes with your visual perspective. Only 30 minutes from Flagstaff and right off I-40, so it's easy to get to.

Commercial buses routinely park there. The lot will accommodate a fleet of RVs and a few space ships.

Yes, you can do this on your own and in 30 minutes. Suggest you skip the museum and go directly to the viewing platforms outside.
