Destinations / North America

Flagstaff, Arizona, is a small enough town that you can easily see the best it has to offer in less than 24 hours. Doing so on a budget can be a bit tricky — it is a resort town, after all.


Start with a hearty breakfast at Crown Railroad Café. This classic American diner is located on Route 66 and offers all of your favorites at less than $15 a plate. Then, make your way to the Museum of Northern Arizona. It’s the best place to learn about the rich Native American cultural heritage in the region and entrance is only $12.


Next, head to the center of town for a stroll around the Historic Downtown and Railroad District. The pedestrian area is full of 1900s-era buildings and plenty of cute shops to explore. Stop for a brief bite at Café Daily Fare, the sit-down arm of Simply Delicious Catering, for a scrumptious duck taco for less than $10.


Since Flagstaff is something of an outdoor mecca you’ll want to head outside and explore. Drive eight miles to Walnut Canyon for a two-hour hike along the Island Trail. The trail is lined with ancient canyon homes where people lived for hundreds of years and entrance is only $8.


Once you’re back in town take a stroll through the Arboretum at Flagstaff to experience the town’s natural wildlife and stunning wildflowers. Entrance is $10. From there, make your way to the Lowell Observatory for some unobstructed views through world-class telescopes. Admission is $22.


Finally, end with a meal at Tinderbox to try one of the incredible bison burgers for only $16.

Amazon Fire TV Sticks Allow for Streaming Multiple Services

Cable is so expensive, sometimes it is easier to just pay monthly for subscription services like Hulu and Netflix. Some TVs come with those applications already installed, but, if not ,you have to use your laptop and a HDMI cord, which takes a while to set up. Instead, get an Amazon Fire TV Stick.
