Northern Arizona is home to some of the most stunning landscapes and interesting towns in the West, and Flagstaff is perfectly positioned for day trips to several of these treasures. It’s just a 28-mile drive from Flagstaff to Sedona through Oak Creek Canyon via scenic Highway 89A, but the changing landscapes and dramatic vistas as vehicles descend 2,500-feet of elevation is enough to leave visitors wanting hundreds more miles. Take a hike, jeep tour, or just peruse the art galleries set amongst the stunning red rocks. A fellow Route 66 town, Williams is about 30 miles west of Flagstaff, combining the Mother Road nostalgia with an Old West spirit. The Bearizona drive-thru wildlife park is a must see, offering an up-close and personal encounter with bears, wolves and other wildlife. For a day trip that will make a serious impact, head east to Meteor Crater, the best-preserved meteorite impact site on earth. This is more than just an impressive hole in the ground. Visitors can “Experience the Impact” with 3D models and interactive displays, movie showings, daily guided tours and lookout points. The Eagles made it famous and countless visitors have snapped a photo of themselves “Standin’ on a Corner in Winslow, Arizona.” There’s far more to this Route 66 town than just a corner, starting with La Posada Hotel & Gardens. Tour this resurrected “Last Great Railroad Hotel,” originally built in 1929 as a Harvey House.
Flagstaff is a history book brought to life, with buildings, ruins and roads that tell the stories of this town’s fascinating past. Once the home of the Coconino County Hospital for the Indigent, the Pioneer Museum is now a living tribute to Flagstaff’s Pioneer history. Exhibits highlight the region’s logging and ranching heritage, as well as everyday life. Wupatki National Monument gives visitors a glimpse into the lives of the people who lived in this area around 1000 AD. Stop at the visitor center for a quick history of the pueblos and a brochure to guide you through the intricacies of this ancient lifestyle. Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument is along the same driving loop and offers hiking opportunities among the new flora poking out between the lava flows and cinder from an eruption about 900 years ago. The rim and interior of Walnut Canyon National Monument was a thriving prehistoric Native American community for more than 150 years and visitors today can walk in their footsteps on the one-mile Island Trail and view the cliff dwellings up close. The Mother Road has lured adventurers for years, and that spirit can still be found today along Flagstaff’s portion of Route 66. Grab a self-guided walking tour brochure at the Flagstaff Visitor Center and discover the hidden Route 66 gems in downtown. Spend an evening two-stepping at the Museum Club, a long-time Route 66 hot spot for touring musicians.
The southside of the railroad tracks in downtown showcases the diversity of Flagstaff, providing a community for early 1900s working-class minorities. Every step you take echoes the intertwined history of Native Americans, Mexican-Americans, African Americans and Basques that established the area. Tour the obvious, as well as hidden gems of the city’s oldest, most eclectic and historic neighborhood.
Flagstaff is the gateway to the Grand Canyon, making a funfilled day trip to this geologic wonder easy and convenient. Seeing it in a movie is one thing, but the breathtaking beauty that rushes at you the moment you peer over the edge is something entirely different. Grab the camera and explore this majestic canyon from every angle. Get the lay of the land with a stop at the Grand Canyon Visitor Center and participate in a free Park Ranger Program to learn more about history and geology. Hop on two wheels and cover more ground the green way with rentals or guided tours from Bright Angel Bicycles. The natural architecture of the Grand Canyon is complemented by the human-designed buildings like Mary Colter’s Hopi House or El Tovar Hotel, perfect for porch swinging and Canyon gazing. Head back to Flagstaff via the East Rim Entrance for another Mary Colter gem in the Desert View Watchtower, and the opportunity to stop at the historic Cameron Trading Post for a famous Navajo taco. Leave the car behind and hop on the Grand Canyon Railway in nearby Williams. The meandering journey and arriving in style is almost as impressive as the destination.
With the rugged San Francisco Peaks as its backdrop, Flagstaff can’t help but lure those with an adventurous spirit, whether they prefer the heart-pounding adrenaline rush or a more low-key activity. Play in the trees at the Flagstaff Extreme Adventure Course, swinging, gliding and climbing over obstacles high above the ground on a series of adult courses, or the fun kid’s course. While at Fort Tuthill County Park take a ride through the Bike Skills Park that offers tracks for tots to experts. Arizona Snowbowl features some of the West’s best learning terrain for firsttime skiers, and some impressive vertical runs along with the challenging Sunset Terrain Park for seasoned shredders. The Flagstaff Nordic Center offers miles of cross-country skiing and snowshoe trails, and the latest in winter fun – snowbiking. Open year-round, each offers summer adventures such as riding to 11,500’ on the Scenic Chairlift Ride or touring through the forest on bike. When the temperature heats up, rent a standup paddleboard or canoe and hit the gentle waters of Upper Lake Mary or one of the many other area lakes throughout the region. Take a stroll around The Arboretum at Flagstaff to learn about the native flora and fauna. The Arboretum is open May to October only. Pick up a Flagstaff Urban Trail System (FUTS) map and a rental bike, and enjoy an approachable 50+ miles of trails throughout Flagstaff. Or hop on one of Flagstaff’s multi-person party bikes to explore downtown with friends.
