"Flagstaff - driving from Phoenix" Top 5 Page for this destination Go out of the city and into the state of Arizona Tip by jumpingnorman

Yes, Phoenix may be hot but during the winter months (December to February), you will see skiers going off to the ski resorts of Flagstaff.

Hikers also proceed to the jagged San Francisco Peaks, with Humphrey’s Peak being the highest elevation in Arizona at 12,643 feet. For those who would like to have a scenic chairlift ride, there is the Arizona Snowbowl (www.arizonasnowbowl.com 928-779-1951) which operates from summer and into October.

From Flagstaff/Wiliams, you can even take a famous train ride to go to the Grand Canyon (Grand Canyon railway)! The trains depart from Williams and the trip through forest and desert takes 2 hours and fifteen minutes each way.

Flagstaff also has commercial places like Barnes and Noble, Sizzler and several other restaurants. There's a lot of hotels you can choose from.

Just follow I-17N from Phx to Milton Rd/Route 66
