Your Guide to Flagstaff in a Weekend

One of my favorite weekend getaways is in Flagstaff, Arizona.

Though Flagstaff is a small town it has much more to offer than you would think.

Here is just one of many itinerary’s for a weekend in Flagstaff.

– Explore the Lava Caves –

Lava River Cave is a natural formation remaining from a lava tube – this trail is an 0.8 mile out and back trail and is perfect for any level hiker.

The entrance to the cave is a medium sized crevice; just big enough to wiggle your way down to the cave floor.


  • Hiking Shoes/ Sneakers – floor may be muddy, wear shoes worth getting dirty.
  • Jackets – the caves are much cooler than the temperature outside, layer up!
  • Water Bottle
  • HEADLAMP – it is pitch black inside this cave, be aware.

– Grab a Drink Downtown –

There are plenty of places to grab a drink in Downtown Flagstaff – the question is; What kind of drink are you looking for? Here are just a few spots that may be calling your name:

  • Cocktails – Rendezvous Lounge in the Monte Vista hotel lobby. Warm up with their famous Whiskey Chai Latte (pictured above).  Click here for Happy Hour info.
  • Craft Beer – Mother Road Brewing Co. offers a 10, 16 or 20 oz of their many in house craft brew’s.
  • Wine – FLG Terrior is Flagstaff’s own Speakeasy Wine Bar has an excellent wine, meat, cheese and even board game selection. It is located in Downtown in a building upstairs – keep your eye out for it!

– See a Live Show or Concert –

The Green Room is Flagstaffs premier live music venue and lounge.
