This town is a great base camp for outdoor adventure. You can ski in the winter, hike in the summer, visit the Grand Canyon anytime. It's got bars, restaurants, and all kinds of lodging. I visited in April which offered hiking on comfortable cool days and a noticeable lack of crowds.Recommended for:

Flagstaff could be a lot cooler than it is, for a college town. There are actually way fewer coffee shops and cool stores than I would expect with a campus this size. It actually seems to lean more being a "gateway to the Grand Canyon" than offering much in the way of what its true treasures are. If you stay here long enough you see the ski season come around but because AZ ski bowl is not exactly world class, the enthusiasm is only half mast. Some of the board shops around town seem excited and there was the Dew Downtown Flagstaff event - they try. Coconino forest, Walnut Canyon, Sunset Crater, Lava Tube, These are the true gems of the area that flagstaff could really focus on rather than sending people to Grand Canyon and on their way. Downtown is cute so it has that going but the other main streets are fast food and hotels. I would not live here longer than we already have but I would visit the area again for all the cool things to do.

An enjoyable area to spend a few days in. Beautiful scenic mountains and ski area (The Snow Bowl) any time of the year. Historic downtown area makes for fun shopping. Best liked restaurant: Busters located near the south entrance of town next to Target store center.
