Holbrook Travel Guide
Welcome to Holbrook!
Since the late 1800s, Holbrook has defined itself as an attractive destination in Arizona's High Country. Born as a frontier town, Holbrook was a ranching and farming center until, over time, it grew into a hub for explorers, travelers and businesses. Located just off of the former Route 66 on Interstate 40, the town is surrounded by the beauty and culture of the Indian Country. Holbrook serves as a great central location for those who plan to explore the Navajo, Hopi and Apache areas. As well, a short drive from the city, 28 mi (45 km), is the famous Petrified Forest National Park, where visitors can hike, camp and explore the historic area where human activity has been traced back over 2000 years. A variety of cuisines, warm temperatures and numerous local attractions have turned Holbrook from a western frontier town into a tourist hot-spot.
Located in the northeast of Arizona Petrified Forest National part is one of the largest areas of petrified wood covering an area of 93,533 acres.
