“Great Photo Op and Leg Stretch on Route 66”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

I'm giving 5 stars - This HUGE Eagles fan gives the full 5 for sheer appreciation. I loved it.

Don't hate on this little corner road stop. Why are you coming to this park if you are not familiar with the song? It is a wonderful nod to the song - look closely around you. Would any of us ever even heard of Winslow, AZ without this melody?

This is not a park for kids to play in - there is nothing to play on. This is a park for music lovers to get a photo op. And this one did.

I was crushed that the souvenier shop across the street was not opened at the early hour we passed through Winslow. I will have to look for then online - do need a t-shirt.

This takes 15 minutes to see - and is worth a leg stretch on the long road trips of I-40/ Route 66.

“A Fine Place to Be”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

A mural, bronze statue and a Ford flatbed truck. What more could you ask for? A real photo opportunity.

“Just a photo op”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

This was the biggest disappointment for me. The town is sketchy at best. There is nothing left there...ghost town material! The only thing to do, is to stand on the corner with the bronze cowboy and have your picture taken. Then run away as fast as you can!

“Eagles time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Winslow is a neat town with that Western feel to it. The "Corner" is in the middle of town with a great mural of "a girl in a flatbed Ford" for those who want some photos.

“Eagles' song in full view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

The corner store plays the Eagles' music while visitors nicely give each other space to take pictures of the statue & the painted backdrop (don't miss the couple kissing in the upper window).
