How to Spend 1 Day in Flagstaff

How to Spend 1 Day in Flagstaff

Surrounded by majestic peaks and desertscapes, Flagstaff is best known as an outdoor adventure mecca and the gateway to the Grand Canyon—but the historic downtown and lively food and beer scene are enough to keep you entertained for the day without even leaving town. Here’s how to spend an adventure-filled day exploring Flagstaff. 

Morning: Highlights and History

Kick off your day in Flagstaff with a discovery of the city’s historic charms on a guided walking, biking, or Segway tour. Don’t waste time finding your way around the city on your own and instead get straight to the local hot spots with a guide to give you personalized tips for restaurants, shopping, and sights. Continue to expand your knowledge of the region's history and culture at the Museum of Northern Arizona to see American Indian artifacts and exhibits that focus on the geology and natural history of the surrounding area. 

Afternoon: Outdoor Thrills

You barely have to leave town to reach the fresh forest air of Flagstaff's Fort Tuthill County Park. Head to Flagstaff Extreme Adventure Course to soar above the ponderosa pines on ziplines or push your boundaries on an adventure challenge course. There's a special course designed just for kids ages 7 to 11. Next, head to Bearizona Wildlife Park, a perfect spot to see wildlife while entertaining yourself or the kids on a convenient self-driving tour a half-hour west of Flagstaff. 

Night: Beer, Wine, and (Paranormal) Spirits

A small-group guided beer and wine tour is an ideal way to explore Flagstaff’s many breweries, bars, and restaurants. Travel by bike with a guide to lead the way and make personalized tasting recommendations. While you could spend the whole evening enjoying Flagstaff’s bars with your newfound friends, it's time to discover a different type of spirit. The ghosts of the “Wickedest Town in the West” are waiting for you at the ruins of Jerome, south of Flagstaff. Join a late-night haunted historical tour and walk through the once-booming town while your guide shares spooky stories about your surroundings.
