The town of Holbrook is located on the wide open plains of eastern Arizona. Old Route-66 was the main street of Holbrook, which was founded in 1882. As the romance of the West attracted many travelers, tourism became an important part of Holbrook’s economy. It was also a stop on the transcontinental railroad and had one of the first Fred Harvey Restaurants which served the train passengers. According to the 2002 U.S. census 4,917 people live in Holbrook.

After World War II tourism flourished as Route 66 traffic increased. Of particular interest in Holbrook are the Navajo County Courthouse dating from 1898 and the one-piece jail that was used until 1976. Nearby are the Petrified Forest National Park, Navajo Reservation and Canyon de Chelly.

Ceci est un aperçu de USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
