Historic Flagstaff was established around the railroad, so there's no more appropriate place to start your downtown tour than the visitor's center located in a railroad station. When the rails subsided, this logging town grew around Route 66, but visitors can still see plenty of historic features that centered around these two different means of transportation. Don't miss the 1888 Babbitt Brothers Trading Company building (constructed in a Renaissance Revival style), the Spanish Colonial Hotel Monte Vista and the 1920's Weatherford Hotel. Many restaurants, bars and shops in this area also retain the charm and nostalgia of yesteryear. A couple of local spots include Flagstaff Brewing Company and Beaver Street Brewery.
