When you think Arizona, you may think ‘cacti and desert,’ but Northern Arizona is vastly different than its Southern counterpart. From the depths of the Grand Canyon to the highest peak in Arizona (Humphrey’s Peak), Northern Arizona is home to several cities including Flagstaff, Williams, Winslow, and Page. Up here at 7,000 feet, we enjoy all four seasons and have unlimited access to everything outdoors from hunting, to fishing, to mountain biking and the Grand Canyon!

Northern Arizona Information
Thinking of moving here? I don’t blame you!
Flagstaff is where I chose to move to escape the rat race and smog of Southern California 12 years ago, met my husband, and raised our family in the beautiful and serene little mountain town surrounded be the largest Ponderosa Pine forest in the world!
Northern Arizona has numerous activities, community events, and history to offer. It’s the perfect place for all kinds of outdoor enthusiasts, foodies, artists, and more. Just a short drive away from any of these towns (Sedona, Flagstaff, Bellemont, Williams, Parks, Etc.) is the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, winter sports, camping areas, Meteor Crater, the Lava Tubes, and so much more! We experience all four seasons and have unlimited access to hiking, fishing, hunting, mountain biking and all things outdoors!

Flagstaff has some of the best weather in the state of Arizona – maybe in the country! With all four seasons, you have beautiful days in the summer that are warm but never Phoenix-status hot. We also receive a summer monsoon season from about to July to early September, where short afternoon rain showers or thunderstorms cool the temperatures down. The Fall brings fantastically colored leaves and crisp air, and winter brings snow – but usually shortly followed up with sunshine. In fact, on average, Flagstaff recieves over 265 days of sunshine per year! If you get tired of the cold and snow during the Flagstaff winter, the Phoenix area is only a couple hours South, making it easy to escape the winter weather and head down to warmer temperatures.

Flagstaff is full of community events such as weekly summer farmer’s markets, numerous local arts, music, food, and craft beer festivals, indoor and outdoor concerts, trail running, mountain biking and other outdoor events, as well as star-gazing and educational nights with Lowell Observatory, The Arboretum and so much more!
