From Phoenix to the Grand Canyon: Where to Stop on the Way to America's Greatest National Park
Flagstaff is known for a lot of things. Great beer, great hiking, and great skiing, to name a few. It’s also known for its dark skies. In fact, Flagstaff was awarded with the world’s first International Dark Sky City designation in 2001. And not for nothing, this Northern Arizona city has been working to preserve our natural night sky for decades. Naturally, this makes Flagstaff a primo spot to stargaze and ponder, who else is out there? And there’s no better place to do just that than Lowell Observatory. Guided tours, both daytime and nighttime, are available and advanced reservations are required.
