You'll find that many of the attractions in or near Flagstaff are natural, geological sites or things unique to the Southwest landscape and culture. One of the biggest draws to this area is the Grand Canyon. Flagstaff is the largest city near the Grand Canyon and serves as a gateway for visitors. But Flagstaff itself has some amazing things to experience. Named the first International Dark Sky City in the World, Flagstaff enjoys some of the best star-gazing in the country and is home to the Lowell Observatory. Flagstaff hosts the Museum of Northern Arizona, the Arboretum, Riordan Mansion, the Pioneer Museum and a range of outdoor festivities like art and science exhibits at the park to Native American drum circles at Buffalo Park. Other attractions include Walnut Canyon, the Painted Desert, Grand Falls, Meteor Crater, Mormon Lake, the Lava Tube Caves, Mt. Elden and many more. You can't seem them all in one trip, but that's why visitors keep coming back to this truly beautiful, unique part of the country.
