Guests staying at the Fairfield Inn Flagstaff for pleasure will find it to be an ideal base of operations from which to visit the many glorious sites that the Grand Canyon State has to offer. The Grand Canyon itself is approximately 65 miles from Flagstaff, which makes it a viable day-trip option.

Other natural formations that prove popular with Arizonas visitors include the Waputki National Monument, the Meteor Crater, Montezuma Castle National Monument, and Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument. Each of these is accessible to those staying at the Fairfield Inn.
Back in town, the Lowell Observatory is a popular attraction as well as a designated National Historic Landmark. The observatory, which has been in use since 1894, is today used for educational purposes rather than research, but is still a fantastic locale from which to see the starry skies. It was here that the dwarf planet Pluto was discovered in 1930.
Downtown Flagstaff itself is historic, and features many buildings and monuments that hark back to 1876 when it was first established as a permanent settlement. Thanks to its lineage and its proximity to the historic Route 66, the small city has regularly drawn tourists over the years.
The town is also conveniently situated for those looking to enjoy winter sports. The Arizona Snowbowl, a 700 acre reserve, is close by and offers a range of winter sports, including skiing, snowboarding, and sledging. The resort even features the likes of half pipes and rail spines for stunt boarders. Guests at the Fairfield Inn Flagstaff with an interest in such sports are recommended to travel between December and April, which is traditionally the snowy season.
