Flagstaff blooms with a whole lot of unexpected amidst the world’s largest contiguous emerald green ponderosa pine forest, sapphire blue skies and mountain crisp air that will have you begging for more daylight.
With close proximity to two national parks, six national monuments, and eight state parks that claim their own distinct flora, and where multi-use trail systems are plentiful, Flagstaff offers plenty of spring things-to-do, many of which are outdoor activities including hiking, biking and watching – yes – wildlife watching offering views of wintering bald eagles, elk, waterfowl and more. Perhaps there’s a preference for walking tours or sipping hand-crafted cocktails or stargazing. We’ve got all that, too, plus zip lining in the world’s largest contiguous ponderosa pine forest and many more by-appointment experiences.
Recently recognized as a trendy US Spring Break destination, Flagstaff’s snowfall provides for great spring skiing, and other snowmelt provides for stunning experiences including nearby Grand Falls whose falls are taller than Niagara Falls.
