One thing Flagstaff natives and visitors enjoy in almost equal measure is the beauty of our four-seasoned landscape! See if for yourself and take in all of Flagstaff’s natural landscape by getting out and about around town. Don’t miss a hike through Walnut Canyon, or the short drives to Wupatki National Monument, Coconino National Forest, or the Grand Canyon. See the stars that make Flagstaff a top-rated dark sky city from the stellar view at Lowell Observatory. Or head down to Heritage Square where there’s always something worth seeing!
For a night of fantastic music, you can’t skip over the Museum Club, one of Flagstaff’s highest rated stops in Flagstaff. Check out the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra or Flagstaff Playhouse for live theater and musical entertainment. And don’t miss karaoke nights at Granny’s Closet, the Monte V, the Green Room, and other local venues!
Don’t leave Flagstaff fun up to chance … head to Twin Arrows Casino where your gamble could really pay off! Get some shopping done at the Old Town Shops, or some of Downtown Flagstaff’s favorite shopping outlets: the Flagstaff Soap Company, Crystal Magic, and more are all within easy distance of your home, and well worth the short trip. Head into the green and blue with a boat tour or rafting adventure with Hatch River Expeditions, a Grand Canyon Whitewater tour, or Arizona Raft Adventures. After a long day out, you might need the soothing touch of a calming massage. Flagstaff has you covered with spas like Massage Envy and Diamond Point Spa!

We’re going back to nature for this one! One of our favorite day trips is up into the Ponderosa pines; people say it makes Flagstaff smell like a vanilla-scented paradise, and we’re not going to disagree. One way to really breathe it all in is with a scenic chairlift ride! This serene, 25-minute ride takes you to the tip-top of Arizona to view all our state has to offer from the heart of Flagstaff! We’re already up pretty high … imagine breathing in the air at over 11,000 feet!
