Top Retirement Cities: Flagstaff, AZ Enjoys Mix Of Students, Professionals & Retirees, Outdoor And Seasonal Activities

From Kiplinger’s online article by Brendan Pedersen:

Flagstaff AZ Smart Places to RetireResidents can enjoy four beautiful seasons in Flagstaff, says Meg Roederer, of the Flagstaff Convention and Visitors Bureau. She graduated from Northern Arizona University (located at the heart of Flagstaff) 30 years ago and never looked back. “Between the student, professional and retirement populations, the city has a real vibrancy,” she says. Don’t be fooled by downtown Flagstaff’s sleepy western vibe. “It’s really a mountain-foodie town,” Roederer says. It has more than 200 restaurants and award-winning craft beers in abundance along a “brewery trail.”

At an elevation of 7,000 feet, this mountain town swaddled by sweet-smelling Ponderosa pine trees has plenty to offer retirees by way of outdoor activities, top-tier dining, volunteer opportunities and seasonable weather. Snowbirds, take heed: This is not the sun-bleached Arizona you may be thinking of. Despite its crisp lack of humidity, it regularly receives about 100 inches of snow every winter.
