Mixing work and play: Try Arizona for your next conference

Mixing work and play: Try Arizona for your next conference

When you think of Arizona in the summertime, images of desert heat and cacti probably come to your mind.  If you’ve ever been to Flagstaff, AZ in the summer, however, you know that’s not true.  

In fact, Arizona can be a wonderfully temperate climate for summertime meetings, and Flagstaff specifically has ways for groups to balance out work and play.

The High Country Conference Center in Flagstaff, AZ can serve as the hub for your group’s activities. With the Grand Canyon just 75 miles away, a day trip to see the sites is well within reach.

At nighttime, take advantage of the big Arizona sky and deliver a memorable excursion for your group.  Lowell Observatory can send an expert to your hotel to lead group

stargazing sessions, complete with a giant telescope.

Explore the rich history or this area and take in the local culture with a short car ride.  Indian ruins at the Walnut Canyon National Monument and cave dwellings at the Wupatki National Monument are under 15 miles away from the Conference Center.

If you're worried about getting in your workout, you've come to the right place.  A nod to the temperate climate, fitness gurus will come to Flagstaff to train at the high altitudes in the summer.

With temperatures in the mid 70s, golf courses and trails are packed with those looking to take in all this area has to offer.  Bundle some fitness sessions outdoors into your retreat, and you'll be sure to offer a well-rounded, memorable conference  or meeting in Arizona.
