Flagstaff Reviews

295 reviews
All Categories
Flagstaff is a beautiful mountain town located in Northern Arizona. It's known for its scenic views and close proximity to the Grand Canyon. Flagstaff has something for everyone! Hiking, skiing, and visiting Lowell Observatory are just a few examples. One of the best places to visit while in town is downtown Flagstaff. It's architecture and diverse groups create a unique environment that's impossible to find anywhere else.
Review Flagstaff
I really enjoy Flagstaff's atmosphere and its people that reside here. The entire town seems to be more independent in its thinking, liberal, and open minded when it comes to subjects of sensitivity. Although, the jobs do not seem to pay as much, especially for a working college student, as I had to get 2 jobs just to pay my own way through school! The rent is pretty expensive as well, but the amount of personal growth through new experiences and every ones outlook is simply irreplaceable
I love Flagstaff! I will be attending NAU this fall and am so excited to be living in the town. There are so many great restaurants and shopping centers. I'm unfamiliar with the public school system, but I know that the university is a great place to study. I have visited many times, and I do feel as though Flagstaff is a safe environment. I have yet to meet someone that isn't happy to live there. All the people are so friendly and inviting. It's truly a wonderful town.
