A winter getaway to Arizona is usually synonymous with sun-baked cactus, golf, swimming pools, and a great tan. But less than an hour away from the balmy links there is another world; a frostbitten alpine environment of dramatic scenery, pristine ski runs through tall pines, and clear cobalt skies. This is Arizona’s winter wonderland of Flagstaff,
where a million acres of national forest and historic sites abound. Visit Flagstaff’s charming downtown area on historic Route 66. In winter,the San Francisco Peaks offer excellent snow skiing.
A classic American vacation that should not be missed.
Two of Arizona’s best known scenic wonders, the Grand Canyon and Sedona, are within easy reach of Flagstaff. The Grand Canyon is just over an hour’s drive north, making for a terrific day trip. Fresh snowfall brings a unique beauty and depth to the Canyon. A short drive south from Flagstaff is the red rock splendor of Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon. Try the popular scenic loop by taking Interstate 17 south to Sedona. After lunch and sightseeing in Sedona take U.S. highway 89A through beautiful Oak Creek Canyon back to Flagstaff.
While the warm southern desert may be Arizona’s best known winter draw, the nearby mountainous beauty of northern Arizona is also a worthy winter destination. With beautiful, snow-draped scenery, exciting winter activities, and an ideal location, Flagstaff is the perfect headquarters when visiting Arizona’s winter wonderland.
