Parking was horrid. Shops are far and few between. Tatoo places and a bar on every corner (exaggeration but it's what it felt like).

We came here with friends who live in Flag. The downtown is a nice place to come for a little window shopping, walking around, and dinner. If you're looking for a pleasant evening out, this place fills the bill.

This little historic district is a nice place to walk around and grab a drink or bite to eat. Plan to park in one spot and see the town by foot. It's a charming place, day or evening. If you are visiting on a Sunday night, this area is very quiet with some establishments closed.

Flagstaff and the railroad station area, Northern AZ University are just wonderful visits. Sit and watch a few trains go by, walk around the town, which is full of interesting people. Great coffee shops, stores, restaurants. Love it.

We finally found a parking space and spent about an hour pokng around town. There were a couple of Native American shops but the prices seemed higher than comparable items in Sedona. There were a few eateries but that was about it. Not someplace that I would make a destination.

Lots of old hotels and buildings. Many restaraunts and bars. Shopping is kind of touristy. The only problem is the lack of parking, especially on holidays.

We walked the old streets of Flagstaff Historic Town and found a lot of restaurants, clothing shops, art galleries and other nice stores in old buildings. It also has different mystic kind of stores with crystals, incense, etc. There are several jewelry stores that offer turquoise and silver jewelry. Do not expect to find souvenirs stores with cheap merchandise.

Start at the Visitor center which is located at the Railroad Depot where the Amtrak comes in. There is a museum and store there and the staff is helpful with providing information. Request a map outlining the historic downtown area which also lists the majority restaurants, stores, attractions. The Chamber of Commerce is right next door if you want more... More
