Nestled in the San Francisco Peaks at 9,500 feet, the Arizona Snowbowl is one of the state's best spots for skiing and snowboarding. The Snowbowl offers three different areas for a variety of skill levels: the Prairie Dawg Start Park, the Southern Belle intermediate parks and the Sunset Terrain Park, which is best suited for advance skiers. The Snowbowl also welcomes visitors to its slopes in the summer for hiking and a scenic chairlift ride. 

Travelers who visited in the fall highly recommended adding the Snowbowl to your itinerary, describing the fall colors as spectacular and the hot chocolate as delicious. Winter downhill skiers said the slopes were nicely manicured and provided diverse options for both novice and experienced powder hounds.

The Arizona Snowbowl is located less than 15 miles north of downtown Flagstaff; hours of operation vary by season. During the winter ski season – which typically lasts from the end of November until the beginning of March – adults can buy lift tickets for $47 to $80, depending on the day and the month. Lift ticket prices for children, teens and seniors also vary by the day. In the summer, visitors can enjoy the Snowbowl by hiking or taking the scenic chairlift, open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. until the end of October. If tickets are purchased online, summer admission costs $15.20 for adults between the ages of 13 and 64; children between the ages of 6 and 12 can ride the chairlift for $10.40. Kids ages 5 and younger can enjoy the chairlift for free. For more information, visit the Arizona Snowbowl website

#1 Historic Downtown and Railroad District

Built along the railroad track – and what would become Route 66 – the Historic Downtown and Railroad District is a pedestrian-friendly area filled with historic 1900s-era buildings that have been converted to shops, restaurants, galleries, breweries and other watering holes. The district also plays hosts to regular events like a farmers market, a monthly art walk, movie nights and more.

Recent visitors heartily recommended sauntering around Flagstaff's Historic Downtown and Railroad District, citing friendly locals, open-air music and countless places to eat, drink and shop. Others also enjoyed the historical signposts, buildings and railroad station. Still, some complained that the college students made the area a bit too lively at night.
