Take it easy in Winslow, Arizona, at the Standing On The Corner Park. Made up of a mural, bronze statue, and concrete corner alongside Route 66, the park is one of those quirky, quaint, and sometimes just outrageous, roadside attractions to be found throughout northern Arizona.
Learn about day trips and adventures from Sedona to off-the-beaten-path places and attractions across Northern Arizona.
There are scores of geological wonders, historic sites, and archaeological treasures found all across Northern Arizona. Some of the most visited sites include restored ancient habitations like the cliff dwellings of Montezuma Castle and the multistory Tuzigoot National Monument. Tuzigoot is an ancient Sinagua (Native American) site perched high above the Verde River. Visitors can walk through a network of rooms and experience what it must have been like centuries ago.
