Go to the Flagstaff Visitor center for anything you need to know about Flagstaff and the surrounding area. Friendly knowledgeable staff Lots of information and the best Flagstaff and Route 66 souvenirs. Downtown shops and restaurants are the best. First Friday of every month is special with art gallery tours and extra entertainment.

Spent a few evenings wandering the shops, ending at the station to watch the freight trains rumble past whilst drinking a coffee. Flagstaff seemed very safe, very easy to walk around and soak up the atmosphere. I would love to return.

Not sure what I expected but found it was small downtown area with mostly local bars, some homeless folks camped out soliciting with signs. Not alot of shopping, trendy hippy clothing stores or rock/crystal/incense type shops. Just ok.

Flag's downtown has come a long way since the 1980's, when I was an undergraduate student at NAU. There are literally dozens of really good places to eat, drink, and shop. The first Friday of the month is "First Friday," which is like a giant street fair but inside and outside. Shops offer goodies. There are street musicians. Totally family... More

Historic Downtown and the Railroad District is an interesting place to take a walk. Parking is available in quite a few places and is free. There are lots of shops and restaurants to see. The railroad itself is is interesting and different from any train station I've seen. I wish we had more time here.

We only had one morning to look around Historic Downtown, but what we saw in that morning makes us want to go back and stay a little longer. Many historic buildings, quaint shops and fantastic places to eat, including MartAnne;s
