Winslow

Last week I made my yearly trip to Winslow, to play toy trains with my friends. The town looked even sorrier than last year - more businesses closed and fewer people. The current store owners talk about 'revitalization', and they just spent a lot of money on fixing up Rt. 66, but to me that's not enough of a draw to keep a town going. It was started for the railroad, but currently there is no reason for Winslow to exist.

Well, except for that old Eagles song, which plays continuously from the gift shop across the street from the famous 'corner' park

Just Google mapped Winslow ... I see what you mean about the Rte. 66 development. Bet if the town advertised itself to the large metro cities as a get-away retirement place the town would boom.
