About Flagstaff

An entirely new vantage point

Located in the high country mountains of northern Arizona, Flagstaff is not the Arizona experience you might be expecting. At 7,000 feet in elevation, temperatures rarely exceed 90 degrees in the summer, fall brings a brilliant change of color, winter snowfall averages more than 100 inches and spring bursts with blossoms.
