Sitting directly on Route 66 in the mountains of Northern Arizona is a town with a very active cultural scene as well as a dedication to all things festive and/or outdoors!!
Flagstaff, known for its fabulous weather, would best be described as earthy, athletic, and educated….with some stress on the "earthy"!
Home of the now famous Lowell Observatory, (where Pluto was discovered!), and the Fat Tire Festival, Flagstaff is about as diverse as a small city could be. If you are looking for "not so hot!" Arizona summers and Winter skiing (both downhill and cross-country), look no further….you may have just found your new home.
Summer is packed full of festivals from the Highland Celtic Festival, Pickin’ in the Pines, a three day bluegrass festival, and the Navajo Festival of Arts and Crafts. That’s just a beginning. There will certainly be SOME kind of festival to suit your tastes.
Northern Arizona University and various other smaller colleges with a multitude of choices to send the kids to school will also appeal to you and your family. The Orpheum Theatre features a multitude of musical acts as diverse as the terrain in Arizona.
Blue skies and the smell of Ponderosa pines……ahh Flagstaff.
Live in the hot desert and looking for an escape? Happy Jack is calling you! Can you hear it?? Cool pines and the Blue Ridge Reservoir are just a few of the draws or "voices" that you hear calling you to come and look at this lovely area. Homes nestled in the pines…how about a log cabin?? I bet we have something for you….
At an elevation of about 6700 ft, summer daytime temperatures are anywhere from about 70-90 degrees.
