Discover the awe-inspiring beauty of our friendly mountain town! Situated at the base of the majestic San Francisco Peaks, Flagstaff offers an eclectic mix of simplicity in the great outdoors with a hint of urban culture. Our charming, historic downtown features local shops, restaurants, bars, and music venues. Our rich heritage dates back to the 1850’s “horse & buggy” era, until evolving into a
1920s Route 66 town, to where we are today – a thriving university community that enjoys iconic scenery year-round.
