Meteor Crater, Winslow

3.4
You can walk right up to the rim of Meteor Crater, thought to be one of the best-preserved meteorite craters on the planet. The crater is privately owned by the Barringer family, the descendants of the scientist who was first to suggest that the crater was due to a meteor. The visitor center displays pieces of the meteorite recovered from the floor of the crater and tells the history surrounding the site. Learn about Daniel Barringer and the journey that led to the crater's discovery, then trek the paved walkway to its viewing point. Bring sunscreen; there is no natural shade along the walkway. Plan a trip to Winslow easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
