Flagstaff, Arizona Attractions

Unusual landmarks, museums, roadside attractions, and hidden wonders in Flagstaff and the surrounding area. It's nestled at the base of Mount Eden and winter snow-prone mountains, and yes, this is Arizona. It's also home to Northern Arizona University and a pair of historically significant Muffler Men that serve as sports mascots. Flagstaff is on the way north to the Grand Canyon, or dreamy third-eye Sedona to the south.
