No. 1 Flagstaff, AZ

1 of 21

With its ponderosa pines, frontier spirit, and easy access to the Grand Canyon, this Arizona town won the medal of honor in T+L’s Independence Day contest. Flagstaff also made the top 10 for its town squares, and the centerpiece of its July 4th celebration is a parade through downtown—along with fireworks, a fun run, a concert by the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra, and “Flagstaff Art in the Park,” a juried art and fine crafts show in downtown’s Wheeler Park. Flagstaff won high marks in the survey for its parks and hosts a downtown Art Walk monthly.
