One of the things that makes Flagstaff such a unique place, is the fact that we have a fairly decent sized population and yet we still manage to maintain a small town feel. This is never clearer than during the annual Earth Day Service Project Event. Steeped in tradition, Flagstaff’s Earth Day consists of volunteers from all over the city coming together to help clean and beautify our neighborhoods and streets. Volunteers meet at 9am and divide into groups; these groups then disband into nearby neighborhoods with the goal to revitalize the community, especially those surrounding Wheeler Park and the South Side. The event shows the common tie that the people of Flagstaff share and it’s one of many reasons Flagstaff is a great place to live and visit.
It’s that time of the year again in northern Arizona. The time where our glorious weather reminds us why we call this beautiful desert home. It’s also a reminder that we need to get outdoors to enjoy the scenic and historic wonders our state offers. One such wonder can be found right here in Flagstaff, Arizona not too far from your Flagstaff hotel, the Wupatki National Monument. This national treasure is an illustrious testament of the Native America culture. At one point the ancient pueblo dwellings housed both the Anasazi and Sinagua tribes. Located near the San Francisco Peaks this is one adventure that you’re going to need your camera and extra batteries for. Oh and a healthy amount of sunscreen wouldn’t hurt either.

Flagstaff is home to some of the most gorgeous scenery and geological formations in Arizona. It’s only 80 miles from the Grand Canyon if you want to take a day trip up north, or you can spend your day taking in the many canyons and natural rock creations closer to the city.
