I hadn't heard of the Meteor Crater in Arizona until we had hit the road on Route 66. But that's the beauty of the Mother Road, there are so many friendly faces and fellow explorers, that sometimes you learn about things as you go. The Meteor Crater was one of those, but it is an awesome thing to see, and definitely worthy of being considered a Route 66 Landmark.
Our love for Route 66 can't be precisely traced, but it started sometime while we were in college, as we frequently drove the stretch of Route 66 that ran through Illinois to visit my parents. We fell in love with the road side attractions, the truck stops, the diners. All of these spots on one small section of the Mother Road stole our hearts.
Here are the highlights from our most recent trip, along with any important information you might need to include theses stops on your next trip to Las Vegas. I put those extra special tips in bold letters so you can find them again later!
