For many of the murals, it pays to head downtown, which is north of Route 66 via 1st or 2nd Streets. The old railroad depot downtown is in a long, long process of restoration but there are plenty of shops and great old architecture.
Closer to downtown, a modern-day Route 66 icon is the 66 Diner (1405 Central Ave. NE, 505-247-1421), first opened in 1987 after being converted from a gas station that began serving travelers in 1946.
"The KiMo Theatre"
The KiMo Theater (423 Central Ave. NW, 505-768-3544) was built in 1927 as an extravagent Art Deco/Pueblo-styled showplace for movies and shows. For decades, it delighted both travelers on Route 66 and local audiences with all the cinematic classics.
"Standin' on the Corner Park"
Along Route 66 (eastbound) at Campbell, you'll find Standin' On The Corner Park, a salute to the song that made Winslow familiar to every country/pop and classic rock fan in the country.
The high elevation and dark skies prompted Percival Lowell to build an observatory here in 1894; in 1930, the planet Pluto was discovered at the Lowell Observatory.
"Historic Train Station & Route 66 Visitors Center"
Opening the same year Route 66 came through (1926, you should know that by now), the train station originally opened as the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Depot. Today, it's called the Flagstaff Amtrak Station.
