Flagstaff sits among the mountains of Arizona at almost 7,000 ft elevation. The area surrounding this awesome city varies from a desert landscape to luscious pine tree forests. Flagstaff is one of the places in Arizona that gets snow each year, averaging 108" annually, and is widely known for the Snowbowl ski resort.
If you visit in the Spring, you'll see Arizona's beautiful wildflowers. During the Summer, the temperatures don't typically exceed the 90's (Fahrenheit), which makes Flagstaff an excellent getaway in comparison to the rest of the state's 120 degree weather. In the Fall, you can count on seeing beautiful fall foliage and get ready to enjoy Arizona's Winter Wonderland.
Back in 1876, Flagstaff was a hotspot for the lumber and railroad industries. Since then, historic downtown has become a popular spot for tourists and locals to hang out. As time has passed, the city is still very much booming. There is so much to do around Flagstaff that tons of people visit each year to join in on the seasonal outdoor activities.
If you love nature like me, there are countless places to camp, hike and Jeep. One popular place to adventure is the Coconino National Forest. During the winter, you can do some serious snowboarding or skiing at the Snowbowl. No matter what season it is, you can always head downtown to refuel at some awesome restaurants, explore museums and enjoy the surrounding mountain views. Flagstaff is such a scenic city.
Still looking for things to do? Road trip a few hours north and check out the Grand Canyon!!! I truly believe everyone should visit the Grand Canyon at least once in their life. Another unique thing you can see while you're in the area is this massive meteor crater! If you're looking for the legendary red rocks, you're in luck. Not to far away is the beautiful city of Sedona, known for its incredible rock formations.
