Meteor Crater

I beg to differ with many of the posts, and don't recommend you go out of your way to see the crater. First, it's almost 45 minutes from downtown Winslow. Second, it's $18 per person, and I was ready to leave only minutes after arriving. I love fun and quirky sites, but this one felt like a rip-off.

We found the crater interesting and learned new things, which is always nice! However, we found the entrance fee pricey at $65 for family of 4 (2 parents, 1 adult teen, 1 minor teen). Would be worth it if there were a sizable reduced rate for students. At current rates, it's a one and done visit.

Meteor Crater - Barringer Crater

No dogs allowed. If you have a smaller dog in a kennel they'll keep it near the entrance for you.

Meteor Crater Observatory

Just as you turn off of I-40 (Old Route 66) toward Meteor Crater there is this structure off in the distance behind fences and "no trespassing" signs...thank you 300mm lens! This was Meteor Crater Observatory, built in the 1930s for folks to see Meteor Crater without having to hike to it.
