Escorted Rail Tours to Flagstaff
See the Grand Canyon and Route 66
The city of Flagstaff, Arizona, is surrounded by some of the most appealing scenery in North America, including the breathtaking Grand Canyon and the towering San Francisco mountains. The city established itself as a railroad town with a flourishing lumber trade and, today, is spread alongside a section of Route 66. Located halfway between New Mexico and California, Flagstaff serves as both a stopping point for tourists en route to the Grand Canyon and as an interesting destination in its own right.
The Downtown area of Flagstaff has a distinct "Wild West" charm, with few buildings taller than three floors. The main street - Santa Fe Avenue - used to be Route 66; you'll find a number of Route 66-themed shops, bars and cafés on and around Santa Fe Avenue. While the main draw of Flagstaff is its excellent location for visitors to the Grand Canyon, the town also has a range of attractions of its own, including the excellent Museum of Northern Arizona, which focus on documenting Native American life and preservation of their traditions, culture and unique skills.
