An easy walk with great little shops and restaurants. It felt like we were back in a different time. There were several people sitting on the street looking for handouts.

The Historic Downtown is well maintained, clean with sidewalks to explore the old stores, churches and pubs. It is a very nice attraction in Flagstaff. The Railroad and Visitor Center are just across the road within walking distance.

We did like the old downtown area but have pretty much seen alot of the same types of businesses in other cities. It was worth a visit though

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

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.
