Flagstaff is an attractive and active city of 55,000 people that serves as the geographical, cultural and recreational center of Northern Arizona. It is surrounded by national forests and sits at the foot of Arizona's highest mountain, 12,634-foot Humphrey's Peak, which provides a wonderful backdrop.
At 7,000 feet, Flagstaff offers year-round activites. In summer there is hiking and mountain biking in the cool air of the mountains. Winter brings plenty of snow with cross-country and downhill skiing. Three national monuments are nearby, and a little further away are the Grand Canyon and Petrified Forest national parks.
Flagstaff is conveniently located along I-40 and I-17 in the northern part of Arizona. It is 80 miles south of the Grand Canyon and 150 miles north of Phoenix.
