I couldn’t leave W without mentioning Winslow, for all those Eagles fans out there. Not a lot goes down in Winslow Arizona ( presumably since Route 66 bypassed it)so they have made they most of those lines in that song by creating a fun photo opportunity with lamp post of course. So if standing of the corner of Winslow Arizona floats your boat here it is .
If you do find yourself in winslow, paying homage to the Eagles or just doing Route 66 make sure you go when you are hungry and have a meal at La Posada. It will probably be the best you’ll ever do on Route 66 and the hotel and art is just a sight for sore eyes. Even better, if you can plan a stop there, stay overnight. Believe me there isn’t much competition on that section of the Mother Road.
This was reckoned by many to be the jewel in the Fred Harvey crown (of hotels) and was frequented by the rich and famous after its opening in 1929. Built on the Santa Fe railway line linking Los Angeles with the interior, travellers in the 1930’s could quickly feel they were in another world but enjoy very high standards of service.
