Enjoyed walking and driving around this area. Ineresting shops and bars and restarunts. The old steam engine was decorated for Christmas.

Flagstaff is a college town, and the downtown area reflects that, with cool boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants, pubs, book stores and outdoor gear shops. Although historic, Flagstaff is also still a railroad town. The "old" train station is still used for Amtrak is a great...More
