Those who are new to Flagstaff will not want to miss out on the city’s most notable historical and natural attractions. Here is a quick rundown of the sites that are most worth seeing in and around the city.
The scenic Route 66 (also known as the Will Rogers Highway), the major thoroughfare between Chicago and California between the 1920s and the 1980s, runs directly through Flagstaff, which is the city with the highest elevation on this road. You will find many remnants of the popular culture of Route 66 in the nearby town of Williams, which has preserved many of the businesses that sprung up as a result of the transcontinental highway. Route 66 may have been replaced by Interstate 40, but the culture of the old road is still alive and well in many of the small towns located along its path.
A visit to Flagstaff must necessarily include a trip to the Grand Canyon. Several companies give guided tours of the region, whether by helicopter, boat or foot. See Getting Around for more details.The Native American tribes have a strong influence on the cultural identity of Arizona, and it is worth exploring a little of this culture by visiting the historic landmarks of Hopi villages and Navajo settlements that are scattered throughout this region.
