What to see & do in the Flagstaff area
If you haven't come to the Grand Canyon to hike down to the bottom (and most visitors don't), you probably will have done the canyon in a day or two. After you've shot several rolls of film and replaced the battery in your camera, what then? Plenty.
Keep in mind that you might want to spend one of your canyon exploration days riding the Grand Canyon Railroad from Williams to the canyon and back. If you do opt for this railroad excursion, be sure to take a little time to explore downtown Williams, which likes to play up its Route 66 history.
Head out the east rim of the Canyon to the crossroads of Cameron and stop in at the Cameron Trading Post (be sure to visit the gallery in the historic trading post building). From here head north to Lake Powell to see what the Grand Canyon would look like if it were flooded with water. If you've got time, be sure to do the boat tour to Rainbow Bridge.
