Quaint area located in train depot right in the heart of downtown Flagstaff. Finally found a postcard depicting the aspens in the area, and Rising Hy mustard local to the area. Good variety in selection of gifts.

If you need any help this is just the place, everyone was so happy to help, very knowledgeable, and I realise that is their job, but they seem to go the extra mile. Can't thank them enough for the information they gave us

because it is within the train station complex, and right across the street from DT Flag with all the shops and eateries, it's hard not to stop by. Lots of maps if you need, but honestly, didn't have anything to discuss with the staff there.

We stopped at this location to purchase our pass to the Grand Canyon National Park. After discussing that we were visiting Sedona, the attendant didn't have anything nice to say about that city. He claimed that he was raised there and it was completely changed, specifically that they "tore down mountains to build the town". I don't know the history... More

Our goal is to provide excellent customer service and travel information on Flagstaff and the surrounding areas not to put down our neighboring... More

the visitor center had a nice selection of maps and useful information but you need to come with questions because the attendant was happy to answer any questions, but wasn't exactly chatty about information about the town.

We asked three separate staff people today August 30th 2014 and they were all very helpful and really kind. They represent the town really well.

So, I gave the Visitor's Center a call to see how the parking works at the Railroad station. Now, mind you, the visitor's center is IN the railroad station. Andy knew you could park, but did not know the cost, and was vague on the mechanics involved in parking our car. He told me to call Amtrak. And he said... More

Dear Visitor- Thank you for taking the time to write a review for the Flagstaff Visitor Center. Amtrak does provide parking for their customers, but not at the Train Station, they have a lot two blocks away that riders can get a permit to park in up to 14 days when they purchase a ticket. Andy was correct we are... More

The Visitor Center is in a working railroad station, and it had historical information as well as info about what to do in the city. Very friendly staff. We used the walking tour map and were utterly charmed by the city. Flagstaff does seem to have a number of hippies--old and young--much tie dyed attire. Very welcoming, very well laid... More

Good quick stop to grab pamphlets about things to do in the area. Don't get stuck at the railroad crossing leaving. You can be there for a long time watching miles of trains go by.

We only stopped in Flagstaff to get a bite to eat, but happened to park opposite the Visitor Centre so we popped in. The people were so helpful. In particular a nice map of old Flagstaff, which we wandered around whilst choosing our lunch spot. They also have a huge array of leaflets about attractions in this region of Arizona.... More
