Flagstaff is a city with the charm of a small mountain town, but the resources of a much larger community. The rustic beauty of the area is in harmony with its sophistication as a university town. Keenly proud and respectful of its historic past, it also strives for the new and innovative.

Flagstaff is the hub of technological advancement in Northern Arizona, with a focus on biosciences, medical devices and renewable energy. In 2009, the respected Kiplinger.com put Flagstaff in its top 10 “Best Cities for Jobs” list, which focused on places that have stable employment plus the talent to create new, well-paying jobs.

Unlike its neighbors in the Valley of the Sun, Flagstaff is situated in the mountains 7,000 feet above sea level, and has four distinct seasons. Snow in the winter makes it a desirable destination for downhill and cross-country skiing, snowboarding and general snow play.

Flagstaff’s location is a top ranking asset when compared to other Western locales. Only 80 miles from the nation’s #1 National Park, The Grand Canyon. Phoenix is only two hours south, while Las Vegas and Albuquerque are within five hours east or west of Flagstaff.

It’s a vibrant educational center, home to one of the state’s three universities and a well-respected community college.
