Should you find yourself in vacationing in the Flagstaff, Arizona area, you will be surrounded by beauty. If you're staying in a hotel room, you're missing out on the scenery. Your views would be much better cruising the tree-lined highways in a motorhome from Cruise America. Flagstaff RV rentals are very popular because there is so much scenery to take in. No matter which direction you point your rental RV, you are going to find yourself in a world of intrigue and beauty. As fortune would have it, Cruise America has a rental center in Flagstaff!
If skiing is your forte, the Arizona Snowbowl will be your first stop (assuming you are traveling in the winter). However, there is a lot to do there in the summer, as well. One of these warmer-weather activities is the Scenic Chairlift, where you will be lifted 11,500 feet in the air for a bird’s eye view of the San Francisco Peaks. You can also see colorful Sedona, the cinder cone volcanic field, and even the walls of the Grand Canyon! If your Flagstaff visit is not centered around skiing, and you are there in the summer, spring or fall, there is still a lot to do at the Snowbowl.
When you are ready to hit the Northern Arizona road, there is a host of great daytrips to be taken. Here are a couple of suggestions:
Grand Canyon: Who can visit the northern part of Arizona without visiting one of the natural wonders of the world? Just 70 minutes from Flagstaff, the south rim of the Grand Canyon will leave you in awe at what Mother Nature is capable of. For the adventurous types, you can hike down to the floor of the canyon. However, remember that everything that goes down must come back up! If you're not up for the long and arduous 8-mile hike back up, you might consider taking advantage of the pack mules that will carry canyon visitors on their backs. From Flagstaff, Take I-40 west to Highway 64. Take Highway 64 north directly to the South Rim. The trip is only about 70 minutes. The South Rim is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and there is RV camping right in the park, but make your plans and reserve your spot early, because there are a lot of happy campers that love to visit this work of nature’s art!
Sedona: Referred to as "Red Rock Country," Sedona is a magical place. Just a 45-minute drive through the breathtaking Oak Creek Canyon heading south on Highway 89, it's easy and enjoyable to get to. No matter what your interests are, there is something for everyone in this Mecca of beauty. The emphasis of this small community is on arts and culture, shopping and spiritual and metaphysical activities. There are several gorgeous RV parks in which you can settle in for the night should you choose to make this a multi-day visit. You will marvel at the monoliths (large rock formations) that are visible from all over town. They are named after the shapes they take on, such as Coffeepot Rock, Bell Rock, Snoopy Rock and Chimney Rock. Sedona is the home to what many refer to as spiritual energy vortexes, drawing psychics and healers from around the world. You may choose to get a massage, or get a psychic reading. Oh, and there are a great number of fine eateries to satisfy your comfort creatures. Sedona is RV friendly, providing camping amenities of all kinds to visitors. The myriad of shops and eateries along the main street that passes through town are open all year-round, so the best time to visit is whatever time of the year you’re there.
No matter where your Arizona travels take you, you're going to love the views from your Cruise America motorhome.
