Flagstaff has the proximity to the Grand Canyon to make it easily navigable as a home base while still offering its own flavor of history and culture. It’s a hotspot for outdoor enthusiasts and is accessible to more than just one stunning park. Basing from Flagstaff gives tourists the opportunity to spend time in the Grand Canyon and, when ready, move on to other fantastic parks like Bryce and Zion Canyons in Utah, the Painted Desert and much more.
Because it’s close, it’s easy to get to any tour you’ve booked. Hiking tours are the most prevalent but most offer add-ons with rafting, air and helicopter outfits so you don’t have to compromise.
