The beating heart of the southwest. Flagstaff is the gateway to the grand canyon and has many national monuments in her backyard. The city of Flagstaff can serve as your launchpad to venture on the adventure of a lifetime. A breathtaking destination lies in each of the cardinal directions of the city.
To the east of Flagstaff lies the first location you MUST visit is the Walnut Canyon national monument. This historical scene is one to remember. Ancient Sinagua cliff dwellings dot the steep canyon walls, descending to the bottom’s narrow and dry creek, from which the canyon gets its name. You can look out over Walnut creek and the ruins from the Visitor Center. However, if you want the whole experience, you’ll have to hike the one-mile Island Trail, which begins directly from the Visitor Center. Stairs take you down the canyon wall about 185 feet, where you can walk below the overhanging walls and through a series of reconstructed ruins.
Flagstaff has been described by many as a city of foodies. Much more than just the gateway to the grand canyon, Flagstaff is a playground for different flavors and tastes. One such flavor is taking Flagstaff by storm; the partnership between local butchery Proper Meats + Provisions and Brix restaurant and wine bar has caught the city afire. Brix Restaurant & Wine Bar serves seasonal, farm-focused, contemporary American cuisine, prepared with fresh ingredients sourced from the local farmers and ranchers of Northern Arizona and the Four Corners region. They prioritize the locally grown, farm to table goals that many restaurants have been striving towards. More than that, they are committed to sustainability and conservation; here are just a few of their sustainable practices.
