Holbrook, Arizona Attractions

Unusual landmarks, museums, roadside attractions, and hidden wonders in Holbrook and the surrounding area. Formerly known as "the town too tough for women and churches," Holbrook became a tourist oasis in the 20th century thanks to its proximity to the Petrified Forest and the fact that Route 66 was routed right through it. Today, Holbrook's history as a Wild West shoot-em-up town has mostly been forgotten in favor of its association with dinosaurs, fossilized things, and the Mother Road. Savvy travelers plan their itineraries so that they can overnight in Holbrook at its iconic Wigwam Village Motel.
