    First, go to the old railroad station (you can’t miss it), now Flagstaff's Visitor Center--there are lots of resources there, most free, to help you choose the best things to do (staff are very helpful too). We did a self-guided walking tour along the town’s Route 66 landmarks with a brochure from the Visitor Center. I wish we had time to go to the Lowell Observatory (Pluto was discovered there)—it sounded really interesting. As it was, we decided to drive to three fascinating places a short way from Flagstaff: the Meteor Crater (35 miles east from Flagstaff, a huge crater left by a meteor that fell 50,000 years ago) and the Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument (20 miles north from Flagstaff, an eerie site of a volcano eruption 900 years ago; it is right next to the Wupatki National Monument, with remnants of Native American ruins, abandoned for over 800 years, so we saw that too). Loved all three. Here’s how that day was: http://transplantedtatar.wordpress.com/2013/01/05/two-craters-and-two-ruins/ over 5 years ago
