Downtown Flagstaff is known for several craft breweries and cozy pubs. After a day of snowboarding or a day of being suspended in the air at the adventure course, there is nothing better than a good meal and a beer. With over 20 places to choose from, you won’t be disappointed with the selection. If you love beer, plan an overnight stay and try the Flagstaff Ale Trail.

While you are in the downtown area, check out the small quaint area with historical Route 66 decor. There are lots of local dining establishments and the atmosphere is very laid back. The Railroad District is a historic part of the town so take a quick look and snap a few photos.
