Coconino National Forest

This national forest is among one of the biggest in the entire country. Featuring incredible scenery, natural wildlife, green spaces, dense forests, and towering peaks, hikers head here in the summer to tackle the famous San Francisco Peaks. If you would like something a little easier to tackle during your trip, you can simply enjoy sitting near the lake, walking along a beginner trail, or teaching your kids how to camp in the wilderness.

First established back at the end of the 19th century, this national park encompasses a huge protected area that prides itself on wildlife, flora, and fauna. Gaze at the amazing forests, volcanic fields, and canyons during your trip to this picture-perfect nature area. Plus, we love coming here to enjoy the hundreds of miles of biking and hiking trails!

Lava River Cave

Like we said, outdoor lovers, will absolutely never want to leave Flagstaff. Another popular location is Lava River Cave, a natural wonder that is so close to the downtown area you can easily head here and back in a half-day! Lava River Cave is actually located within Coconino National Forest, so you can head here right after tackling a hard peak hike — it is the perfect way to relax and view a one-of-a-kind cavern.

Did we mention this cavern is over 700,000 years old? Yes, you heard us right! This cavern was formed by a volcanic eruption, so this may be the only time you’ll ever see something of this type of beauty. Head down into the cold and icy cave (that is more than half a mile underground!) and enjoy the incredible geography of this natural area.

Historic Downtown

Once you head back into Flagstaff, why not walk around the historic section of downtown? The Historic Downtown area located in the city center is home to much of the city’s cultural attractions, historical monuments, restaurants, cafes, and shops. You can easily spend a whole day here — or more — just wandering around and looking at what it has to offer.

We recommend getting one of our Flagstaff luxury rentals in the downtown area that makes it easy to walk here on foot. Simply head out your front door and enjoy shopping at one of the boutique shops, buying clothes at a vintage store, or sipping on a cocktail at a local bar.

You can wander around and check out the old brick buildings that are over a century old! The incredible architecture, interior design, and exterior touches will remind you of times past. These preserved exhibits and old buildings are reminiscent of Revival Architecture, making this an educational and exciting area to visit for kids and adults alike.

A few must-visit stops during your tour of the Historic Downtown include the Weatherford Hotel and the city’s visitor center.

Wupatki National Monument

Last but not least, the Wupatki National Monument is one of the state’s most incredible archaeological sites. Located just one hour drive north of Flagstaff, this monument’s location is beautiful enough to justify driving here! Positioned perfectly on the Colorado Plateau, this national monument is surrounded by ruins, green trees, rolling hills, and historic settlements that make it feel like you have stepped back in time.

The national monument is named after the largest settlement on the plateau — the “standout” feature and why so many people visit here. This incredible red rock building used to be over 100 rooms — just imagine how grand it must have been during its heyday!

Although this structure was abandoned in the 13th century, it provides insight into how tribes lived back then. Heading here for a full day or half-day trip is great for families who want to learn and respect the North Arizonian culture.

Flagstaff, AZ, is home to many things to do all year round, ranging from indoor shopping and dining experiences to outdoor cultural attractions. Where else can you visit a historic downtown area, drive to the nearby Native American monument, AND enjoy the local vintage shops all in one day?
