    • Sunrise Location along South Rim?

      Grand Canyon National Park Apr 14, 2014 at 12:44 PM

      I am planning to take my wife to the Grand Canyon for her birthday and want to be there for the sunrise in June. Will be driving most of the night and arriving to the Grand Canyon Village area sometime around 4am. From what I've read it seems you can enter the park at any time of day.

      Wondering if there is a good place(s) we could drive our car to and park to see the sunrise (from the car); possible short walk ok too (as we'll be driving all night and probably not up for a major hike).

      Thanks

      Any suggestions as to where we could watch the games? Yelp and Google are proving fruitless.

      by taylortime05 Online Now Jun 19, 2011 at 6:15 PM

      We are flying into Phoenix and flying out of Las Vegas. The reason I chose to fly into Phoenix is my husband is there for work and he will be finished when we join him. It was probably a mistake to fly out of a different city.

      My original plans were to go to Grand Canyon, Los Angeles, San Diego, and Las Vegas. We have 13 days. I had not originally planned to spend much time in Arizona. My husband thinks we should spend a day or two to see Flagstaff, Kingman and Sedona. We have 2 teenagers with us. What would you recommend?

      Also, I have looked everyone for a deal on a rental car. We'll be paying about 600 for the 12 days. Does anyone know of any deals for one way rentals?

      Thank you

      A question I have that you might be able to help me with is....

      Can you help me find any places nearby where we can:

      1) quadbiking
      2) dune-buggying
      3) archery
      4) wall climbing

      etc. adventurous stuff outside, stuff that involves engines or a bit of adventurous attitudes (maybe even fitness).

      We'll be doing a lot of walking,but my three active boys (9-13 years old) would love if we could do some of the activities I've listed above.

      cheers in advance for any help you can (hopefully!) give,

      I'll be coming to Flagstaff on an April Wednesday by train. The day I show up, I'll take a shuttle to Sedona and back. The train is scheduled to come in at 5am (will probably be more than an hour late) but the shuttle doesn't leave until 9am. So, are there breakfast joints open and near the Amtrak Station? Also, any suggestions for dinner? I'll be staying near the station and would like pretty budget eats.

    • Flagstaff in December

      by TheGeneral Online Now Oct 9, 2007 at 10:21 PM

      My wife and I have to be in Arizona in late December and I am hoping to take advantage of being in the area to see the northeastern part of the state. My concern is weather. Cold is okay, snow is not. I am thinking of visiting Flagstaff, heading north to Tuba City and the Hopi reservation, then east to Canyon de Chelly. I felt pretty good about the trip until I saw a travel website with photos of Flagstaff in winter. It was covered in snow.

      Is this a crazy thing to do at that time of year? Should I expect tons of snow on this trip or am I getting worried over nothing? Thanks!

      Hi all,
      We are planning to move to Flagstaff with my wife and my cat in the middle of August, 07.
      I've read a lot about the town itself, how calm and pleasant it is, but I need some more detailed info about it, like:
      1. how safe it is? we are trying to establish a family there, have kids...
      2. are there any good churches? by good I mean a rather traditional church that focuses on the Bible; where people don't go to have fun and enjoy a show but to learn God's will, and to deepen their relationships with Him... and also not a "movie-style church" where you sit and watch and leave and nothing changes...
      3. can anyone recommend a specific area to move into in Flagstaff that is quiet but still safe, that is close to parks, green areas... and also not too expensive
      4. what's the public transportation like? is it year-round and frequent?
      5. is the weather dominantly cold there?

      We've already been to Flagstaff in May of last year, we drove through it while we visited the Grand Canyon... we kinda' fell in love with it.

      Any advice is highly appreciated

      Hello!

      I'm travelling with two other people from for about 3 days in the middle of July to Flagstaff. What are some cool places to hike? Nothing too extreme, we're hiking newbies, but something cool. I was looking at Lava River Cave and also Lenox Crater. It's hard to tell whether something is really neat or not without actually seeing it ;)

      What do you recommend? I won't be there for long, and we will probably only be able to do 1 or 2 hiking expeditions. And I like ones in remote locations, so that isn't a problem if you think I'll get lost :D

      Driving Through Flagstaff / Staying Thursday Night / Fun Bars?

      by beatchfre Online Now Sep 26, 2005 at 8:01 PM

      My cousin and I are going on a road trip (Santa Fe->Monument Valley->Grand Canyon->Las Vegas). We're planning on spending a night on a Thursday. This will be the third time I've done the trip, but I've only been out in Flagstaff once. We asked our concierge to recommend a good bar - he recommended one because it was "college night". We were the only ones there under 40, but we had a good time anyway. It was right near a Taco Bell Drive Thru - can anyone tell me what it's called?

      Can anyone direct me to a decent web site that lists the bars in Flagstaff - one that perhaps has photos. I've googled and found a few sites, but most are YellowPages-type dealies - I've learned not to trust these sites 'cos they're outdated and cater, it seems, to strip clubs! A web site showing photos, etc would be great!

      I'm off to google some more.

      thanks in advance for any replies.
