The Flagstaff Area
Historic Flagstaff is located adjacent to Mount Elden, just south of the San Francisco Peaks, the highest mountain range in Arizona. Set in colorful Sedona near Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument and the Lowell Observatory, Flagstaff is a hub for visitors driving to the Grand Canyon, climbing, hiking, or even skiing at the Arizona Snowbowl. The historic district is also a popular destination as Flagstaff is off of Route 66 and has a rich Old West history.

The annual Northern Arizona Book Festival, held in the spring, brings together nationally known authors to read and display their works. The Flagstaff Mountain Film Festival is held every October and features a variety of independent films and documentaries focusing on extreme sports, environmental issues, and global topics. On New Year’s Eve, people gather around the Weatherford Hotel as a 70-pound, 6' tall metallic pine cone is dropped from the roof at midnight. Any time of the year is perfect to visit this Old West town just off of Route 66 in the high-desert region with its gorgeous mountain views and colorful desertscapes.
