Discover Flagstaff

Ahhhh, the Great American Southwest! Did you know that Arizona has more than 11.2 million acres of state forest land? And, with 800 species, has more animals, fish, fowl, and reptiles than any other US state.  Our “City of 7 Wonders” is nestled in the heart of northern Arizona . . .in the largest contiguous Ponderosa Pine forest in the world.   At 7.000 feet elevation, Flagstaff is Arizona’s “four-season” destination. Explore our 7 Wonders: 1.      Grand Canyon National Park   2.  Walnut Canyon National Monument 3.  Sunset Crater National Monument   4.  Wupatki National Monument  5.  Coconino National Forest   6.  San Francisco Peaks   7. Oak Creek Canyon   Hike our highest peak, Mt. Humphreys (3,800 meters),  horseback ride, or perhaps bike or run where Olympic athletes train. 

Adjacent to the expansive Navajo and Hopi Nations, Flagstaff has a long history with those who came before us.  A “must visit” is the Museum of Northern Arizona, opened in 1928 to protect and preserve the natural and cultural heritage of northern Arizona, particularly our tribal neighbors.  Pueblo ruins such as the iconic wonders of Elden Pueblo, Picture Canyon, Walnut Canyon National Monument, and Wupatki National Monument are just minutes from downtown.    Flagstaff Extreme offers the USA’s largest adventure and ziplining courses.  Historic and Public Arts Walking tours, a trip down memory lane on Route 66, and our truly local and authentic downtown (named by as one of the most “charming historic downtowns in America”) should top your “must do” list. 

 After your daytime journeys, enjoy over 200 restaurants, live music, concerts, Flagstaff Symphony, and the incredible Lowell Observatory at night.  Designated as the World's First Dark Skies City in the World in 2001, Flagstaff leads the way on clear skies and environmental regulations to protect and preserve the clear skies.  The Milky Way can be seen by the naked eye in Historic Downtown but looking through the telescopes at the Observatory is unmatched.  This prestigious research observatory trained every astronaut that walked on moon in 1969, discovered Pluto, and is the number one attraction.

The MOST to do in Northern Arizona – don’t pack an unpack!  a.
