Flagstaff Arizona

The Mountain Town of Flagstaff, AZ is the closest major city to the Grand Canyon's South Rim and the largest in Northern Arizona.  Home to Northern Arizona University this laidback college town is a great destination in its own right, and the best base camp to explore the Grand Canyon and surrounding areas.  Flagstaff got its start from the Logging and the Railroad industries, but modern day flagstaff runs off tourism and the University.  With the San Francisco Peaks as its backdrop, a lively downtown scene, great cultural activities, and a huge outdoor scene, this is the sort of destination many visitors would love to call home.
