Things to Do

At an elevation of 7,000 feet (2,135 m), in the midst of the world’s largest ponderosa pine forest, Flagstaff is a four season hub of activity where an eclectic mix of small town charm and endless outdoor adventure beckons. Echoes of a rugged pioneer past blend with modern-day innovation to create a destination full of activities to keep you busy both inside and out. Whether your suitcase holds hiking boots and trekking gear or loafers and the latest novel you will find a way to feel right at home.

History buffs will delight in the Route 66 nostalgia and the museums and attractions dedicated to Flagstaff’s Native American culture and old west legacy. Those who like to hit the town will have a hard time choosing between all of the locally-owned shops, restaurants and galleries in historic downtown.

Flagstaff attracts outdoor enthusiasts year-round with its spacious vistas and cool, clean mountain air. Favorite activities include hiking, mountain biking, disk golf, camping, boating and rock climbing. During the winter months, Flagstaff is host to countless skiers and snowboarders, as well as many families who come to enjoy nearby snowplay.

While you are here, plan to use Flagstaff as your home base to explore some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. The city is only 80 miles from the Grand Canyon and close to seven national parks and monuments.
