Flagstaff sits among the rugged, sun-baked landscapes of Northern Arizona, where majestic snowcapped mountains meet striking red deserts and rock formations. Unsurprisingly, it’s a playground for outdoor recreation, from skiing the slopes of the Arizona Snowbowl, to hiking, biking, or venturing 90 minutes away to the iconic Grand Canyon.

Brimming with Route 66 nostalgia and Old West charm, Flagstaff itself provides a well-equipped basecamp during your adventures. Steeped in history, it’s home to numerous drinking holes, locally run stores, and palate-pleasing restaurants. Close to town you’ll find Bearizona – a natural safari park teeming with wolves and bears.
