Head up to the cool country for Flagstaff Blues & Brews

There’s no cooler place to hang out during Arizona’s hot, dry month of June than 7,000 feet high in Flagstaff. Add two days of eclectic blues music, a tasty variety of beers and a wide expanse of green grass, and you get perfection with the Flagstaff Blues & Brews Music Festival.

The park is home to 86 species including 42 mammals, 27 reptiles and 17 birds.

There’s nothing like the holiday tradition of touring Christmas lights

There’s nothing like the holiday tradition of touring Christmas lights

For almost as long as people have owned cars, they’ve been driving around to view Christmas lights from the comfort of their vehicles, often with hot chocolate and cookies in hand. Once your parents treat you to this holiday tradition, you’re likely to carry it on for the rest of your life to rekindle those warm childhood holiday memories.
