Seriously, a visitor's center that doesn't open before 10 am on a summer weekday? There is no visitor or tourist information anywhere around Flagstaff. Car after car was pulling up around 9 am this Monday looking for assistance.

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

We've been to Flagstaff numerous times but have never really seen the town itself and experienced its history. The Visitor Center (in the railroad station right downtown) offers a guided tour of Old Town (actually New Town) that provides excellent historical information about the original town and railroad. It's about a 2-hour tour (actually ran a half hour over) with... More

The Visitors Center is the place to go if you want to find out what to do in Flagstaff and want a map of the town. They gave us a map to get to Grand Canyon along with directions.

We arrived looking for information about walking around downtown. The staff located Jerry who providers walking tours. Jerry was dressed as a deputy from the early days of Flagstaff. He told us stories about the founding fathers and families. Jerry's stories added to the overall experience about the history and influences that formed Flagstaff. We were able to go inside... More

If you need maps or brochures or have questions this is fine, but I was somewhat disappointed that there were no exhibits or displays that I saw, it was just the maps etc. and stuff for sale (gift shop type souveniers). FUnctional but not worth visiting for itself.

The information consisted of handing out a brochure (their last one!). No additional suggestions or specific activities suitable for my party. I wonder what they will do for their next visitor now that they are out of brochures)
