Yes, Winslow, Arizona is a real place.  It is in the northern part of the state and a great stopping off place for a  visit to  the Grand Canyon, Canyon de Chelly, 4 Corners, Monument Valley and Navajo Nation.  The problem is that it is pretty much a dumpy little town on RT 66 with only  two remarkable things.  First is a mention in “Take It Easy” and tomorrow I will show you the other amazing place to visit in Winslow!  In the video, there is a Ford convertible, but on the actual corner with the guitar man is a flatbed Ford truck which you can see from these pictures.

The Eagles are an American rock band that started in 1971 in Los Angles. They have sold 150 million records and are one of the all time most popular groups.  “Hotel California” is probably a more recognizable  song, but we love to crank-up “Take It Easy”  in the car and sing it with great gusto!

Now you will never hear that fleeting mention of Winslow, Arizona without remembering. .
