Native American Historic Site
Walnut Canyon National Monument, only 10 miles (16km) east from Flagstaff along I-40, contains about 25 cliff-dwelling rooms constructed by the Sinagua people in the 13th century along a 1 ½ mile (2400m) loop trail. (Warning: there is a stairway of some 240 steps to get into and out of the canyon; if this is too strenuous, there is also a rim trail).

Sightseeing
Historic Downtown Flagstaff: (Between Butler Ave. & Dale Ave., and between Humphreys St. & Verde St – 8 block x 5 block area north and south of the railroad tracks)). Be sure to spend some time walking around the historic downtown area, and note the historic plaques on many of the buildings. There are several good Native American crafts shops and outdoor clothing & supplies stores (see “Shopping” section), and numerous good restaurants (see “Dining” section). On weekends there are frequently events on Heritage Square (free) and pop concerts at the Orpheum Theater. Parking can be difficult; visitor parking lots are located off Beaver Street just south of the tracks and along Phoenix Avenue nearby, and there is an underground pay parking lot on the east side of San Francisco in the second block north of the tracks. All parking in the downtown area is pay parking ($1 per hour); enter your license plate number and pay with a credit card at a nearby kiosk. Several of the streets are one way, so drive carefully.

The most popular nearby attraction is, of course, the Grand Canyon National Park. There are 2 routes to get to the South Rim. The usual route is west (turn R) along Highway 89 and then north at Valle along Highway 64; the Park entrance is 70 miles (110km - about 1 ¼ hours) through the ponderosa pine forest and then the high desert. In the summer, try to arrive early as there can be a substantial wait at the park entrance. Incidentally, there is a nice historic aircraft museum at Valle, but it might be best to visit it on another day to allow more time at the Canyon. - An alternative route is east to Highway 89 and then north to Highway 64 West, about 85 miles (135km - 1 ½ hours). This route provides good views of the San Francisco Peaks and the San Francisco Volcanic Field and the high desert. The Cameron Trading Post, just past the Highway 64 turnoff, is an interesting stop for souvenirs (don’t miss the Gallery of antique Native American crafts on the north side of the parking lot), and their famous “Navajo taco” makes a good filling lunch. The Park entrance here may be less crowded, but the Visitor Center and Grand Canyon Village is another 25 miles along the Canyon rim through the Park.

- Oak Creek Canyon and Sedona: a beautiful drive down through the canyon to the red rock country of Sedona – 35 miles (55km), about 1 hour along Hwy 89A. (But traffic entering Sedona can seriously back up in summer, especially in the afternoon). Stop at the overlook at the top of the canyon for a great view. Slide Rock State Park is a popular swimming area a few miles north of town.
