ARIZONA ADVENTURES w/ Randy & Lori...FLAGSTAFF

Downtown Flagstaff is a place we love to visit, especially during the hot summer months! Downtown is the best place to people watch, grab a drink, a bite to eat and listen to outdoor musicians. The variety of places to enjoy are vast. My favorite boutique is Shoes and Such; for obvious reasons! There is a way cool thrift/costume store called “Incahoots Vintage Clothing Store” on East Aspen. Always a great variety of vintage clothing, jewelry and costumes for any occasions. We personally LOVE the historic hotels in the area as well.

Close to the falls are remnants of a small stone home and also a way cool outcropping full of Petroglyphs. This is a great place to stop for a break and light lunch. Next stop is the world famous Cleator Bar and Yacht Club. Cleator was established in 1864 as a placer gold mining site. The AZ Cleator family has been connected to this venue and community since 1925.The Bar and Yacht Club is a mus ... read more
