The Beautiufl High Country.....We Love Living Here!

What can we say about the town we love, the town that has embraced our family for decades… majestic, alive, interesting, warm hearted, natural, home. Our hope is that you can experience not only the sights and sounds of Flagstaff, but also engage with the people that make this city and Northern Arizona so special!

Flagstaff Arizona nestled at the foot of the 12,633 foot San Francisco Peaks was christened on 4th of July 1876 when lumberjacks nailed a United States Flag to the top of a Ponderosa Pine and called the unnamed settlement Flagstaff. Founded in 1881, and insuring Flagstaff’s growth, the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad arrived in 1882. Ironically, the historic Tutor revival-style Santa Fe Station now houses the Flagstaff Visitors Center where visitors can stop by for maps and walking tours of the city.


Historic Downtown at the heart of Flagstaff is where you will find the most unique in clothing, jewelry, outdoor, art galleries, restaurants and pubs. A must is First Fridays Art Walk from 6p-9p boasting art exhibits, performances, live music, treats, and much more! Celebrations go on at many of the hot spots after 9pm.

Lowell Observatory with its scenic setting and famous structure welcomes visitors with historic displays and hands-on exhibits. You can marvel at the night sky viewings much of the year.

Riordan Mansion State Historic Park opens to a 1904 American Arts and Crafts 13,000 sq.ft. Duplex style mansion with 40 rooms filled with the Riordan family’s precious mementos, handcrafted furniture, and original artifacts.

The Arboretum at Flagstaff displays beautiful varieties of native plant life growing in a botanical garden at the highest elevation in the nation.

National Monuments abound starting with Walnut Canyon National Monument’s pristine walking trails through cliff dwellings where the Sinagua people lived nearly a thousand years ago. Wupatki National Monument, Hopi for “big house” provides us a glimpse of the past with pueblos of the Anasazi and Sinagua tribes. Meteor Crater, a sight to behold, is 550 feet deep and 24 miles in circumference burst into existence some 50,000 years ago when an enormous meteorite falling 30,000-40,000 miles per hour hit this Arizona plain.

The Grand Canyon with its unparalleled nature is about 80 miles from Flagstaff, or you can travel in style via The Grand Canyon Railway’s vintage train from Williams. Wonders abound everywhere at the Canyon…including the dining at the El Tovar!
