We visited Flagstaff during the Christmas season for an afternoon day trip on a weekday (we stayed in Sedona). It was cold but not snowy or rainy. Parking was not especially difficult. There are a number of quaint shops and restaurants but a number of businesses were closed which was a little disappointing. He area is walkable and decent for... More

Downtown Flagstaff has a great mix of shops, local and some national chain type places (like coldstone creamery) but it's a nice place to stop for sure. You can eat drink and peruse the local culture- from Native American jewelry and crafts, herbs, outdoor gear, books, to chocolate shops, sushi and brew pubs... Parking is horrid, it's best to park...

On our way from Sedona to Grand Canyon, we stopped in Flagstaff, which once was one of the main stops on AZ part of the legendary Route 66. There's a big parking lot, just close to the railway station, so it was easy from there to explore. It's a small town with many cute shops and restaurants. Snow gave it... More

Did some shopping in the cute little shops. Fun talking to employees who are mainly students and learning about them.

Enjoyed our time in Flagstaff historical district. Lots of restaurants and quaint stores over a 3 block area. Easy to spend a few hours.

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 visited in the winter and it was cold...snowing. Be sure you pack clothes accordingly, there's no Walmart in town. The depot has an awesome gift shop and access to see the trains up close. Very clean inside and out. Had a nice time walking through the shops. Decent food choices but the town closes early so be sure to... More

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
