Downtown Flagstaff is a quaint old city with lots of historic buildings. I particularly enjoyed seeing the Railroad District, with its still active Amtrak station. This station retains the appearance of a turn of the century rail depot and holds a mystique that will inspire the imagination.

Downtown Flagstaff is a lively, vibrant place. There are lots of great restaurants and some interesting shops to browse in. We also enjoyed the heritage architecture. The Railroad is central to downtown Flagstaff with about 6 trains an hour passing through town during daylight hours. Maybe not so good if you were staying downtown but fun to watch.

An extremely nice place to visit, eat and enjoy the numerous galleries in this downtown area. Parking becomes an issue within the area.

You shouldn't miss a visit to the historic downtown, but don't expect too much and consequently don't expect the whole experience to last too long. It doesn't take long to go up and down the various streets before you are thinking about a relaxing drink or a meal to take up some time

We took a guided walking tour of historic downtown & really enjoyed it. It is so nice to visit a place with a vibrant, thriving downtown. Too bad there aren't many towns like that left.

Enjoyed walking around downtown, great restaurant and going just across the street to check out the Amtrak station. So easy to get around with the one way streets and even at night we found free street parking without difficulty.

We didn't spend too long in the downtown area but the time we did spend there was enjoyable. The area was clean, busy, felt safe, had some very nice unique shops and was, on the whole, a nice place to be. We didn't get to visit at night but it was certainly very enjoyable during the day.
