Flagstaff is a cool town to visit anytime of the year, but when it snows, the place gets busy. When it's busy, you can always count of a good time in the downtown area the railroad district. Lots do eat, shop and do. Make sure you stop by the old time train station for a trip back in time.

We were using Flagstaff as a stop over between the Grand Canyon and Sedona having driven from Las Vegas. We had no idea this was such an interesting town - and the historic district is fabulous. We are from VA and get very little snow. Well, it has just snowed in Flagstaff so we got to see it in it's... More

This is worth a quick look as it is right in the middle of old town and really easy to find parking and walk around a bit.

Train depot is really restored nicely. Lots of local information about the surrounding area. Also nice gifts for all ages. The staff was friendly, and very helpful. Railroads were a big part of the history of our country

Flagstaff's historic district is very interesting. The historic buildings and variety of shopping makes it a must see. Lots of unique eateries and bars all within walking distance to each other.

The true character of an old western railroad town is in tact, combined with the thriving university vibe. The variety and quality of new restuarants will surprise you. Step back in time with up to date coffee houses, shopping, and an abundance of charm.
