The High Country Conference Center—Flagstaff's newest meeting and event facility—is located on the North boundary of the famous Northern Arizona University campus, adjacent to downtown Flagstaff and easily accessible by road and air. Surrounded by mountains, desert and ponderosa pine forests, it’s a gateway to the San Francisco Peaks, home to Arizona’s tallest mountain (Humphreys Peak) and helicopter rides to the Grand Canyon. Nearby, Wupatki National Monument has Native American pueblo sites, and Walnut Canyon National Monument is dotted with their cliff dwellings. At an elevation of 7,000 feet (2,135 m), Flagstaff is a hub of activity where an eclectic mix of small town charm and endless outdoor adventure beckons.
Flagstaff Pulliam Airport (FLG) is the closest commercial airport to Flagstaff, and is readily accessible from just about anywhere in the world by connecting through the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) on a daily basis. The Arizona Shuttle also provides service between Phoenix Sky Harbor and Flagstaff and will take a little over two hours.
The weather in Flagstaff is unlike most other areas in Arizona—May temperatures can range from approximately 68° F during the day to 38° F in the evening, which makes layered clothing a good idea.
