Nestled beneath the towering San Francisco Peaks, Flagstaff has grown to be the top snow location in the state. As a ski town, there is plenty of great shopping and eating!
RESTAURANTS & SHOPPING
If you’re looking for fine dining, check out Brix Restaurant & Wine Bar or The Cottage. For a kid friendlier fare, check out the famous Diablo Burger, grab some grub at the Bigfoot Bar-B-Q, or visit Mike & Ronda’s The Place for fabulous breakfast.
Don’t miss out on all the fun shops around downtown Flagstaff too! The downtown area spans around four blocks and is very walkable. In our opinion, some of the best fudge in the world is made in Downtown Flagstaff (maybe we’re biased.) Go to Sweet Shoppe Candy Store in on Aspen Street to sample some.
Want to see the place where scientists discovered Pluto in 1905? Visit the Lowell Observatory! During the day, you can check out the rotunda museum and look through their specially equipped solar telescope to look directly at the sun without hurting your eyes. We suggest that you visit at night though to really get the full experience, and see the planets like you’ve never seen them before through the high-powered Omniglobe Telescope.
Channel your inner Tarzan at Flagstaff Extreme Adventure Course. Suspended above the Coconino National Forest, the adventure course consists of a zigzag of zip lines and rope courses rising higher and higher into the trees. The day starts with a safety course and training session and has options for both adult and child adventurers. This is only open in the summer months.
Finally, if you’re a history buff, Flagstaff does not disappoint. For the military history buffs, visit the Fort Tuthill Military Museum to learn more about Arizona military history. To learn more about Northern Arizona history, visit the Museum of Northern Arizona or the Pioneer Museum.
