The world's best preserved meteorite impact site on Earth.  Located just minutes from Interstate 40 and the old Route 66 in Northern Arizona near Winslow.  Meteor Crater is the spectacular result of a collision that rocked the American Southwest approximately 50,000 years ago with the energy of more than 20 million tons of TNT.  Situated under the wide skies of the Arizona High Desert, Meteor Crater offers an interactive educational experience for the entire family in a beautiful, natural setting.  The Meteor Crater Visitor Center is located on the rim of the Crater.  The fully air-conditioned building features an indoor crater viewing area, Crater Trail access, Interactive Discovery Center, Artifacts and Exhibits, Gift & Mineral Shop and the Blasted Bistro.  Elevators and ADA accessibility are available for guests with special needs.
