Bordered by the iconic Route 66, Flagstaff's downtown area is full of shops and restaurants all home inside historic buildings dating back from the 1800s. Westward expansion and Flagstaff's ideal location for those on their way to the west coast made this lumber and ranching town the perfect pit-stop for the railroad. By the 1930s, Flagstaff was on the map as a hub for astronomers, as well, with the creation of the Lowell Observatory, which is still in operation today and less than two miles from downtown. 

History museums, fine dining restaurants, and locally owned shops that specialize in handcrafted Native American art line the streets of downtown while outdoor adventures lie just minutes away. Favorite spots for the locals include Heritage Square, a cozy plaza located in downtown that boasts frequent live music events, free and open to the public. 

With all of this history and natural landscape, it's no wonder Flagstaff's downtown area boasts plenty to do and see.

It's true that Flagstaff is high in elevation. However, much like a plateau, it's hills aren't noticed as the valleys, hills, and mountains of its textured geography aren't experienced unless you venture out of the downtown area. In fact, it's surrounded by natural wonders and the city itself is sometimes even referred to as 'The City of Seven Wonders'. One of these wonders is the world-renowned Grand Canyon, just an hour and a half drive from Flagstaff's city center. 

Walking around downtown, the atmosphere varies as you and your hound weave your way through both residential and commercial buildings. Tourist seasons may have the sidewalks a little busier with pedestrians than usual, in which case, you and Fido can stick to purely residential areas simply by avoiding the popular streets of the downtown area. Once north of Birch, Aspen, and Cherry avenues, sidewalks tend to be quieter as more and more homes take place of businesses, breweries, and cafes.

Although it has a downtown and plenty to do, Flagstaff isn't a highly concentrated or urban area. This means that you and Fido are mere minutes away from a variety of outdoor adventures! 

Just a five-minute walk from downtown, Wheeler Park rests in a neighborhood right beside Flagstaff's public library. The ideal location for foot traffic makes this park the designated venue for a number of local festivals and community events. Mature trees shade the spacious, grassy lawns, giving citizens the perfect spot to read, chat, or even take a nap.

If you and your dog are up for a longer walk, Old Town Spring Park is a 15-minute jaunt from the downtown area and, while humble in size, the park offers a playground, basketball court, and grilling stations to its visitors. 

Thorpe Park is a local favorite as it has so much to offer: a huge disc golf course, serene ponds, sports courts and fields, multiple playgrounds, and even a dog park.
