World's Longest Map of Route 66

Meteor City Trading Post is completely defunct now. Not even the map is standing. We cruised by on a Monday morning and were disappointed to see the map in complete disrepair.

The "Save a Landmark" logo painted by Hampton Hotels (from back in the day when they were sponsoring Rt. 66 landmark makeovers) is still awkwardly visible....

Meteor City Trading Post - World's Longest Map of Route 66

Meteor City Trading Post has closed. The World's Longest Map of Route 66 is falling apart. Stopped by last week; you can still drive up to it.

The Trading Post opened in 1938 and was put up for sale in September 2012. The map was painted by a hotel chain in 2002 as a publicity stunt; the big Save-a-Landmark branding was never intended to be ironic.

The dome has been repainted and no longer says "Meteor City" on the side.

Not a bad pit stop, although prices are high. Didn't see a mural, but there is a nice RV park now. There is also a place to get fast-food -- Mexican. This is nice since there is pretty much nothing once you leave Flagstaff.
