Barringer Crater.

Totally worth a stop, and the fee! Make sure to not bring pets, as they are not allowed inside. Don't believe the naysayers...this was literally created by space and its amazing! Barringer rules. [Cathy, 06/22/2019]

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.

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