First time here with family, we are on our way to Grand Canyon. The downtown area is small but has all it should have, lots of different style restaurants, brewhouses, cafe, stores and most important a railway station. 超出你对一个西部小镇的预期,小镇甚至有点儿像一个小规模的passadena old town了,各种风味的酒店,酒吧,商店,加上那座仍在使用的火车站。

So much to see and do downtown! There's a rich history, haunted places, and murals everywhere. Easily spent a couple hours wandering and taking photos. Definitely stop at the train station visitor center too.

I took 5 teenagers and my friend around downtown Flagstaff and took a walking tour. Really fun place to be, busy, lively. Had ice cream and teas while enjoying the town. Everyone enjoyed!

Fascinating mix of people, stores, restaurants, antique places, public spaces, bars, and entertainment. Dog friendly. Parking often tough because so popular. Downtown Flagstaff is a must-see.

Good place to visit during the day and good bars of a night but bit of a drugie feel to the night. Probably best to stay to the lit up areas.

Downtown Flagstaff is a happening place. There are lots of restaurants and stores, located in historic buildings throughout the downtown area. It is charming and fun to walk around. It may take you ten minutes to find a parking spot, but just keep driving around until you find one.

We were on a time schedule so couldn't get out and just browse the shops and all, but oh how inviting this area is! Honestly think this would have been a full day of just looking and buying and eating. Would love to go back.
