  1. Flagstaff is a Mountain Town

Flagstaff is located in Northern Arizona, at around 7,000 feet elevation, at the base of the San Francisco Peaks. If you are moving here from a lower elevation, remember to increase your intake of water when you arrive, and take it a little easy with the intense exercise until you become acclimated. Also, the air can seem a little dry, so set up a humidifier in your new home for maximum comfort.

  1. You’re Moving to a College Town

Flagstaff is the home of Northern Arizona University (NAU), supporting a vibrant community of students through much of the year and a wide selection of amenities that only college towns enjoy, like independently owned coffee shops, and craft breweries. In fact, there are over 8 breweries situated in the Flagstaff area, and some see Flagstaff as a capital of craft beers. Being the home of a large university also creates a lot of opportunities for employment.

The average annual snowfall is in fact 90 inches, and the snowiest months are usually December and January. There are many wonderful things about Flagstaff during the winter months, including excellent skiing at the local ski resort located just outside of town.

  1. Flagstaff is a Dark Sky City

Flagstaff was designated as the first International Dark Sky Place in 2001. This means that residents and visitors can enjoy the most incredible views of the night sky with minimal light pollution.
