Meteor Crater - close to Winslow AZ
We visited the Meteor Crater out of pure curiosity; reminded of how awesome it was in the movie "Starman." This is likely the most perfectly preserved meteor craters in the world - worth a visit!
The wind was blowing at nearly 75 mph the day we visited, no joke!
It costs $15/adult to enter, with $2 military discount.
What to do in Winslow, Arizona
"Visit the Meteor Crater"
About 50,000 years ago a meteor estimated to be about 150 feet in diameter slammed into the earth about 20 miles west of modern day Winslow, Arizona. The depression is about 0.75 miles in diameter and 550 feet deep. It is one of the better examples of a meteor crater on the planet; but the area is privately owned, and the entry charge ($10 per adult when I went there) is a little steep. They also have a space capsule on site. It has a small museum and a gift shop to part you from more of your money. Also near the town is the Homolovi Ruins State Park which is a better place to spend the day.
The town of Winslow had these beams moved here from Ground Zero. They were part of the twin towers destroyed on September 11, 2001. The town of Winslow erected this monument as a memorial to those who were killed on that day and all others who have given their lives in defense of freedom.
