Welcome to Flagstaff!

Nestled at the base of the San Francisco Peaks, Flagstaff has the charm of a small town with the diversity and opportunities of a big city. It is home to both a Historic District boasting buildings from the late 19th Century as well as burgeoning Bioscience and Technology fields that embrace the future. Northern Arizona University calls Flagstaff home. Although it is rural in nature, Flagstaff is also the hub of many of the state’s major attractions, including the Grand Canyon, Sedona, and Lake Powell. Phoenix is located two hours south, giving Flagstaff a convenient proximity to a major metro area and an international airport

Flagstaff features four distinct seasons and the outdoor recreation that comes with them. Moderate summer temperatures encourage a wide array of outdoor activities including mountain biking, hiking and running. With an annual snowfall around 260 inches per year at Arizona Snowbowl ski area, Flagstaff is also a haven for winter sports enthusiasts. Meanwhile, fall and spring are both spectacular, with shimmering golden aspen leaves and fields of blooming wildflowers.
