The first known selfie was taken in 1839 by Robert Cornelius, yet it wasn’t until 2002 that the term “selfie” appeared at an Australian conference.

The now popular trend extends beyond Earth to the Curiosity Mars Rover, which shared a selfie with the world. Now Flagstaff has joined the ranks of these self-portrait pioneers with the Flagstaff Selfie Trail.

The Flagstaff Convention and Visitors Bureau developed the Flagstaff Selfie Trail and coinciding map to help visitors find iconic locations throughout town to snap their selfie and share with #FlagstaffSelfie. The newly created trail features twelve locations ranging from the Coconino County Courthouse downtown to The Museum Club on Route 66, in addition to three “seasonal selfie” spots to capture year-round imagery.

Throughout the month of September Flagstaff is celebrating everything selfie during Selfie September. In addition to the Flagstaff Selfie Trail locations, look for the #FlagstaffSelfie icon at participating locations and events including the Coconino County Fair, Movies on the Square, Aspen Sports, Karma Sushi Bar Grill, Mountain Sports and more.
