Flagstaff is an authentic Arizona town. You won't see tourist crownds but you can get a spirit of what is to live in Arizona

Almost everything in the downtown area is within walking distance- just park and walk. The whole downtown has quaint shopping stores for tourists, wonderful restaurants, galleries or anything you'd expect out of a small town. Flagstaff is the hidden gem of Arizona. The mountains and the cooler year round temperature make it an ideal location. Don't just drive by Flagstaff... More

I have to say its just a beautiful city with a lot of history. We loved the trains or I should say my grandson did. I liked the mountain feel of the whole area.

Never knew this area existed until recently. Nice - lots of restaurants, bars, and shopping. Not too many drunk college kids, either.

We went in March 2014, and their is not much night life. Most vendors close up at 5 or 6 pm. Very few stores were open past that time, and parking was horrible. There were few or no handicapped parking from street to street. You will have to walk several blocks for a spot. We tried to pick up loved... More

What a wonderful downtown!! There are so many unique shops to visit! During the summer, they play movies in the square and it is so neat to see everyone come and watch a movie in the square. There are also some wonderful local diners to eat at!

The downtown is a great pace to browse for many venues not usually found in most cities. Particularly, Winter Sun, a shop with Native American arts and herbal medicines and crafts.

We spend one night in Flagstaff as part of our road trip from Phoenix to The Grand Canyon and Vegas. We paid a short but pleasant visit to Flagstaff Historic downtown while looking for a nice place to dine. The historic downtown is small, lovely and has good restaurant options. It makes a good morning walk before lunch or afternoon... More

There are many shops to visit and you need to visit all. Each one has someting unique to offer. Stopped in the saddle shop and dont have a horse, ended up purchasing a beautiful blanket. Ate at Collins Irish Pub, had the Ruben (best one ever had) and a Burger (if Irish isnt your thing). Make this a destination.
