Flagstaff

Four seasons of fun is what Flagstaff is all about. No matter what time of year you visit, you’ll find adventure and exploration alongside small town charm.

Right Now

Jam-packed with cultural diversity, beauty, history, recreational, and scientific opportunities, Flagstaff is bursting at the seams with everything that makes life exciting.

Fall colors, snowy winters, blooming springs, and mild summers provide perfect backdrops for as many outdoor activities as you can imagine. Flagstaff’s Northern Arizona University is a hub for scientific minds and freethinkers. American Indian culture offers a unique historical context, with nearby Navajo and Hopi reservations.

On October 24th, 2001, the City of Flagstaff became the World’s First “International Dark Sky City” a designation awarded by the International Dark Sky Association. Flagstaff’s low-light pollution and commitment to enforcing stargazing-friendly lighting restrictions make it the ideal destination to explore the night skies with the naked eye or at Lowell Observatory

If you love the smell of pine, you’re in luck because at a cool 7,000-foot elevation, Flagstaff is nestled in the world’s largest Ponderosa Pine forest. It’s also a stone’s throw away from seven national parks and monuments and 80 miles from the Grand Canyon

Whether you consider yourself a modern explorer, an outdoor adventurer, or a cultural enthusiast, Flagstaff will meet you with arms wide open.
