We really did not have much to spend in Flagstaff except in the evenings, and I am sorry I did not see the observatory. I shall go back for it! We went to the Grand Canyon and to Sedona.

Many small shops and resturants to choose from with alot of history. We enjoyed mingling with people from all over. This is some place you don't want to miss.

We arrived at night so most shops were closed. The restaurants were opened and the breweries. A real college town at night.

There's a nice visitor's center by the railroad station and many historic shops and churches in this area.

Loved this town. We drove through on our way to Grand Canyon, no intention of stopping, and were so taken by how quaint and chill it was, we came back after a few days hiking. It's one of the most relaxed, friendly places I've visited in the U.S.

The historic district is a compact area with 74 eateries and limited parking. It's a fun place to walk, window shop, have a meal and people watch. It was very busy as it was graduation weekend at NAU so parking was scarce but there are public parking lots (expensive).

The downtown retains some authenticity and the shops were pleasing. Sedona has much more to offer, but it is over-run with tourists and has become so commercial. Flagstaff is not.
