Flagstaff: Travel Bug's 3 Fascinating Facts

Flagstaff: TTB’s 3 Fascinating Facts

‘While The Travel Bug was on his Route ’66 road trip, he felt a bit peckish (he’s always peckish…) so he made his humans take him to Flagstaff for some carne and fascinating facts…’

While having a burger stop at a roadside diner in Flagstaff, he got chatting to a waitress called Gracie and she told him all about the city…

City of the Seven Wonders

Flagstaff is known as City of the Seven Wonders because it’s surrounded on all sides by seven natural wonders of the world! These are The Grand Canyon, Walnut Canyon, Sunset Crater National Monument, Oak Creek Canyon, Wutapki National Monument and the San Francisco Peaks. Phew! That’s a LOT of stuffs for a little bug to fly over.

Route ’66

The longest remaining intact portion of the historic road runs through the state of Arizona. A large slice (mmmm…pizza) of this goes directly through Flagstaff. This makes it a very popular destination for road trippers like Travel Bug and his humans.

Pluto

Pluto (the planet, not the Disney doggo) was discovered in Flagstaff.  The smart humans at the Lowell Observatory uncovered it all by themselves!  Unfortunately, Pluto is no longer included in the official list of major planets. According to NASA, Pluto is now considered a ‘dwarf’ planet. As far as Travel Bug is concerned, whether it’s a dwarf or not: a planet’s still a planet, right??

Do you have any other fascinating facts about Flagstaff to share with The Travel Bug?

Hasta pronto, amigos…
