Here's our overview of staying in Flagstaff, Arizona. To say we were relieved to get here is an understatement. We were worried we might not make it at first! If you follow us on Instagram, you know that story!
Michael and I decided to stay at Black Bart's RV Park off of I-40. Again the RV park was right on the highway, so you get a lot of car noise, and you can also hear the train on the tracks. None of it was loud, but it was there. We enjoyed our stay though. The proximity to the highway was great for us so we could explore the area with ease. It was also the only RV park we could find with running water during the winter months, which appeals to us! No complaints. The property is wooded and quite lovely.
We ate some dinner at the Texas Roadhouse in Flagstaff. We realize this is a chain, but the rib-eye we ordered there was melt in your mouth - like butter. I was impressed, and those rolls they serve with that cinnamon honey butter? Oh, my word! Michael and I were able to share a rib-eye with two sides and those rolls. The margarita was all mine though!
As a fun activity, Michael and I went over to the Meteor Crater thirty minutes outside Flagstaff. It was an enjoyable experience! The crater looked like a small mountain range in the middle of the plains. Once we got up to the top, we got an impressive view of the damage the meteor did! The tickets were $18. It's well worth the money if you have any interest in such topics. We got some great pictures and learned a lot about the crater, like how astronauts used it to practice for being on the moon!
We also ate one of our dinners at Fat Olive's. This has to be one of the best meals we've had on our journey so far. The burrata appetizer is to die for! Their pizza was also fantastic, and we couldn't believe how delicious the dolce calzone was. We highly recommend going there for dinner or two while you stay in Flagstaff, AZ.
The other place Michael and I visited was the Grand Canyon. How could we stay in Flagstaff and not visit the Grand Canyon? It was jaw-dropping. We could never have guessed how large it was until we saw it in person. Wow! I find it hard to put it into words. I'm just glad we got it off my bucket list. It is definitely a day-long adventure, so be ready to be up there from sunrise to sunset. We took some pictures during the sunset, and it was spectacular. We ate lunch at the Angel Bright Lodge, it wasn't anything to write home about, but it was cheap and easy, and we were famished!
