Northern Arizona’s Attraction Hub
Flagstaff is situated at a major crossroads, easily accessible from the east, west and south. Interstates 40 and 17 provide direct access from the West’s major metro areas, including Albuquerque, El Paso, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego and, of course, Phoenix and Tucson. Highway 89 provides access from states to the north, and Highway 180 links Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon, just 81 miles (130 km) to the northwest.
* From the East or West: Interstate 40
* From the South / Phoenix: Interstate 17
* From the North / Page / Lake Powell / Monument Valley: Highway 89
If you are coming from Phoenix, take I-17 north and follow the numerous "Flagstaff" signs. I-17 terminates in Flagstaff at its junction with I-40 and becomes Milton Road which in turn becomes Route 66 in downtown Flagstaff. This is the main artery through Flagstaff. When you arrive, be sure to stop at the Flagstaff Visitor Center in the historic train station, 1 East Route 66. The friendly staff will provide you with free information on local attractions, events, accommodations, and tips on Flagstaff’s diverse dining choices and vibrant nightlife scene.
* From Sedona: Highway 89A north through Oak Creek Canyon
* From Grand Canyon National Park (South Rim): Highway 180 south
