How to Spend 2 Days in Flagstaff

How to Spend 2 Days in Flagstaff

Flagstaff is best known as a gateway to the Grand Canyon, but with two days based in the Northern Arizona adventure hub, you have time to get to know the city’s often overlooked attractions before making a day trip to the famous canyon. Here’s how to maximize your time in Flagstaff and on a trip to the Grand Canyon. 

Day 1: Culture and Adventure

**Morning:**Get acquainted with the city on a guided walking, biking, or Segway tour that introduces you to Flagstaff’s historic downtown in an interactive and informative way. From there, start ramping up the adrenaline with a zipline or challenge course adventure on the outskirts of town at Fort Tuthill County Park.

**Afternoon:**Get out of town and see the mountains and desert landscapes for which the region is known. Book a shuttle from Flagstaff to Page and Lake Powel and let someone else do the driving. Alternatively, tour Bearizona Wildlife Park from your own vehicle. 

**Night:**Wrap up your first day in Flagstaff by biking through the city on a guided tour that introduces you to the city’s beer and wine culture. Or, if beer and wine aren’t your thing, opt for a family-friendly excursion that explores the spooky side of the historic downtown.

Day 2: The Grand Canyon

**Morning:**Get up early for a guided Grand Canyon day trip that hits all the road trip highlights along the way. Take advantage of classic desert photo ops in the morning light and learn about local history at Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument and Wupatki National Monument. 

**Afternoon:**Stop for lunch and souvenirs at Cameron Trading Post before continuing to the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. Inside the park, you have time to explore the Rim Trail, which leads to many iconic overlooks and provides vantage points for panoramic photos. 

**Night:**A tour with round-trip transportation means that after sunset at the Grand Canyon, you can rest on the drive back to your hotel. Then, spend your evening relaxing at one of downtown Flagstaff’s breweries or restaurants, enjoying handcrafted beer and locally sourced food.
