Historic and Accurate

The downtown area is truly like stepping back in time. To get the full benefit, you might want to do a tour of the historic buildings.

What a surprise, who knew Flagstaff would be so much fun. The downtown area is filled with great little restaurants and bars. It is small enough that you can park your car and just walk up and down the blocks, popping in wherever you have a fancy. We really enjoyed a drink at the eclectic Monte Vista Hotel and dinner...

We actually visited in 2013, but are just now getting to tripadvisor, sorry. We really enjoyed the walking tour, even though it looked like it was a snow-apocalypse outside. Thankfully, Granny's was on the tour and we were able to duck in right as the worst part hit. There is such rich history in the area. Thank you for putting... More

Combine this with a trip to Lowell's observatory and dinner at Black Bart's steakhouse, and you have a nice day's outing from Sedona.

Lots of restaurants and shops. Best Thai food ever at Patos! Good use of old buildings but they aren't particularly noticeable unless you're looking for it.

My husband's a train buff so he enjoyed seeing trains go by while I poked my head in different stores. Lots to see and lots of restaurants.

Art galleries, the chocolate shop, the friendly people, Macy's bohemian coffee shop and particularly the local artist's cooperative gallery. Great deals and lovely people.

There is a fund of history in the downtown area. I loved the informative plaques on the buildings. There has been a determined effort to maintain the older buildings. We spent about an hour just wandering around

The buildings all seem to be historic, however, the shops are very up-to-date. From sushi to tacos, new clothing to vintage, haircuts to eyebrow threading, this place has it all!

It was an interesting concept, and it brings a lot of Phoenix tourists to town, so it is a financial/fun/frustrating thing. Many residents complained about the streets being blocked off as we wandered around town. The downtown area needs a reboot! Not that many stores that carry items of interest to tourists. How about a Native American Gallery bigger than... More
