“Worth a Quick Stop”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

IF you're in the area, it's worth a quick stop to get your photo taken with the bronze 1970s rock dude and the flatbed Ford. The gift shop on the opposite corner blares Eagles music all day and sells lots of Route 66 stuff, along with an interesting mix of rock 'n' roll/hippie/biker stuff. A real shrine for male baby boomers. A fun place to check out... help keep the 70s alive!

“Route 66, memories”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

I think the best part of Standin' on the Corner is the good memories it brings back of so long ago. On this May evening we walked the very quiet downtown for a look at the special little park, took a few photos and stopped for a great Mexican dinner at a little tiny restaurant.

“Where was the girl in the flatbed Ford?”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

If you are a "true" Eagles fan, this is a must see. It's a bit out of the way but worth the journey. Great for a beer conversation. There is a cute gift shop opposite this park (it may be 1000 sf) that has great souvenirs and, don't know how they can do it, they actually had Harley Davidson merchandise? FYI, if you're planning to have a quaint lunch or some brewskies while visiting, you'll be out of luck. There really is nothing else in Winslow. My apologies to the locals. All in all, still a must see. Strangely enough, while touring the remainder of the day "Taking it Easy" played twice on the local Flagstaff fm station. Hmnnnnnnnnnnnn..........................

“Who knew?!”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

I was thrilled to see that the little town of Winslow Arizona got it together to make something out of a phrase in a song. Big fun and it put a smile on our faces. Plus we had to take pictures. It's worth a stop and take time check out the little ol' town, too!

“A great place for a break and picture”
Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Eagles fan or not, if you are on the road trip of your life - Route 66, this will get you in the singing mood, a fab place for your pictures, but watch out the road can get busy.

Try your own take on the usual pictures, be creative.

Sit down have a coffee at the store and ask lots of questions.

Its a road trip and places like this make it. Enjoy
