6 Ways to "Fall" in Love with Downtown

Category: Downtown Blog


  1. Hello, Fall. After a long hot summer, it is so nice to see a change in the weather. One of the most simple ways to enjoy Downtown during fall is with a walk. The trees in Flagstaff this time of year are stunning and the weather is brisk, perfect for breaking out those boots and sweaters. This is the best time of year to check out new businesses, visit with friends, window shop, and soak in the beauty of fall Downtown. 
  2. Good Eats. A new season means new foods! One of the best ways to warm up when it is cold out is with some warm, hearty food. Grab some comfort food at Shift, enjoy some soup from Mix, or grab a late-night bite at Lotus Lounge. No matter where you decide to eat, Downtown restaurants will never fail to bring you delicious food that will leave you craving more. 
  3. Hot Cup of Joe. Is it really fall if you don’t switch your iced coffee to a hot one? There are a number of coffee and tea shops that you can grab a drink to warm up with. Sit in a cozy little nook in Steep, have breakfast and coffee at Late for the Train, or bundle up and enjoy your drink on the Tourist Home patio.  
  4. Halloween Harvest. Halloween is quickly approaching and Downtown is the place to get all your spooks and thrills! Come to Heritage Square on Thursday, October 31st at 4 pm. for the Halloween Harvest. Partake in a BOOgie dance party, a Freaky Fashion Show, and more! There will also be a Trick-or-Treat Trail that night as well. Go trick-or-treating at participating businesses around Downtown where you will receive candy and special discounts! 
  5. Homecoming Fun. When I say “Lumber” you say “Jacks!” This week is Homecoming Week for Northern Arizona University! In between all the Homecoming festivities, make sure you come Downtown to shop, eat, and drink. Many businesses offer a Lumberjack special that you do not want to miss out on. See the attachment below. 
  6. Locals’ Night. Did you know that every month there is a Locals’ Night in honor of all you awesome local Flagstaff residents? Every third Tuesday of the month Downtown is hopping with chatter and discounts from participating businesses.
