Welcome to Flagstaff!

(Published on - 9/26/2019 6:06:15 PM)

Welcome to Flagstaff! Its location is one of its best features, as it sits at 7,000 feet and has four distinct seasons. Here are a few fun facts:

Location -- It is gateway to the San Francisco Peaks, home of Arizona Snowbowl ski resort. It is also only 80 miles from the Grand Canyon, and hosts over 50 miles of urban trails (FUTS), as well as trails throughout national forest land. Including the Beale Trail…did you know Edward Beale used camels to help establish a trade route from Arkansas to California in 1857? Flagstaff is also home to the longest intact stretch of America’s Mother Road, Route 66!

Nature and Space – Packed with trails and forests, Flagstaff is parked right smack in the middle of the largest Ponderosa pine forest in the world…and this tree is famous for its vanilla/butterscotch aroma in the summer months. Go ahead, find one and give it a sniff! And the Lowell Observatory is one of America’s first major astronomical research facilities (built in 1894); Pluto was discovered by scientists there in 1930!  Also, in 2001 Flagstaff became the World’s First “International Dark Sky City.” (This designation is given to cities with exceptional commitment to dark sky preservation through quality outdoor lighting.)  Like rocks? With its close proximity to the Grand Canyon, you can find many layers of rock history in the area…including fossils in the rocks that were used to build the Ice House on Birch Avenue!

To Do -- Flagstaff boasts a variety of pet friendly hotels, restaurants, and shops. Bring your furry family member to one of any number festivals and events throughout the year. Too many to name, the short list includes First Friday Art Walk, Movies in the Square, the local Farmer’s Market, Pickin’ in the Pines, Blues and Brews, the Overland Expo, and the Urban Flea Market. There is something for everyone, whether your interests be art, music, history, food, breweries, camping, biking, skiing, star gazing, geology, or just a good time!
