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 six national monuments 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 preference for festivals or sipping hand-crafted cocktails or stargazing. We’ve got all that, too, including the state’s largest Blues festival – Flagstaff Blues and Brews Music Festival which can certainly be enjoyed in hiking boots because Campbell Mesa Trail System is adjacent to the festival’s site.
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.
Moments can be simple, but brunch has got to hit the mark. Many Flagstaff restaurants will be treating moms like royalty with noshing options inclusive of bubbly libations to decadent flakey bakery goodness where calories just don’t matter.
