Experience historic Route 66 in Winslow, Arizona.

Take Exit 257 from Interstate 40, in Eastern Winslow (Highway 87 exit). Head south on Highway 87 to the stop sign. On the right is the Winslow 9/11 memorial. This unique monument features two girders from the actual World Trade Center. These are two of the largest pieces the city of New York allowed to leave the city.

Turn right (west) at the stop sign. Follow 3rd Street west past the downtown stop light. One block west of the stop light, turn left (south) onto Kinsley St. In front of you is the Standin' on the Corner monument. Stand on the corner in Winslow, Arizona, as the Eagles did in their famous tune, "Take it Easy." The back side of the mural wall was impacted by a fire, but cleanup is proceeding and the monument should soon be new and better than ever.

Next, head south again for one block to 1st Street. In front of you, across 1st Street, is the new Renaissance Park, with a Gezebo on the east end. Turn right (west) onto 1st Street and park in front of the railroad car portion of the park.

The NEW letterbox is between the Santa Fe Amarillo car and caboose 179. It is actually under caboose 179 near the hitching area of the two cars. It is an arms length back inside and under the platform near the hitches.
Watch your step when climbing around the rail cars, and good luck. Also- it can sometimes be very, very muddy behind the cars. So if you are approaching from that direction, look down. Have fun!!
