AmericaJR’s Jason Rzucidlo recently went for a road trip along historic Route 66 in Arizona. In this gallery, you’ll see photos from Twin Arrows, Arizona. It is a ghost town located in the central part of Arizona on U.S. Route 66 (US 66) in Coconino County between the city of Flagstaff and the town of Winslow. A business named the Canyon Padre Trading Post, named for the gorge that cuts nearby, was established in the late 1940s in Twin Arrows. Business was slow for the store and diner until the owners changed its name to “Twin Arrows Trading Post”, inspired by nearby town of Two Guns and added a service station. Two 25-foot (7.6 m) giant arrows which were placed on the property were easily recognized by traveling motorist and the business began to fourish. In 2013, the Twin Arrows Navajo Gaming Casino opened to the north of the trading post site.

Visit Twin Arrows, Arizona by taking exit 219 off of Interstate 40. It is about 24 miles east of Flagstaff and 167 miles northeast of Phoenix. For more info, go to https://www.twinarrows.com/
