The kids really enjoy walking around and checking out all the stores and things they have going on during the summer. I definitely think they raise the prices up for the tourists which is sad news for us locals.

Flagstaff is a relaxed friendly mountain town and we locals feel lucky to live here. Something guests aren't mentioning are two COOL regular downtown events: 1. The first Friday art walks when shops put up pieces from local artists or open their galaxies at night. The town is buzzing with activity on the first Friday evening of any month. 2.... More

Being our first time in Flagstaff, I guess we assumed a larger downtown area. Small, but quaint. Easily walked, unless it's hot out.

The area is interesting with a mixture of shops, cafes and pubs. We were not there at night so cannot speak for the night life. The information office was very helpful with lots of leaflets and displays.

Historic Flagstaff is an interesting place to walk around. There are a lot places to dine, snack or grab a cup of coffee. The square is a gathering place and the night we were there they had a classical music presentation. There is an eclectic mix of people but we felt very safe and comfortable.

Well worth a side trip to see the variety of arts and crafts stores, old vintage hotels and a very nice variety of eating places. Flagstaff was the original Capitol of AZ. Also being a college town lots of people viewing opportunities too.

An experience for anyone, must be sitting on the platform at ground level on Flagstaff Rail Station and watching what seems endless procession of huge freight trains. As we were from the UK the trains seem so tall and so wonderfully long. In Flagstaff don't miss it. PS if you are staying overnight in Flagstaff on the old route 66... More
