SATURDAY, JUNE 3 29th, 2023

Lunch at Little America near Flagstaff

The next tour will be on Saturday June 3rd 2023 & The destination will be the Little America restaurant & hotel in Flagstaff for lunch


We just learned today that there is critical road damage on Hwy 87 from Clint's Wells 13 miles south to the Hwy 260 west turnoff, to Camp Verde.
Apparently, the snow removal vehicles and equipment have made that road section impassible and it was in our original tour guide to go to Clints Wells.

I have changed the tour guide and it is below. Please destroy/delete the original guide previously sent and use this new one.

It forces us to drive on I-17 from Camp Verde to Little America, 55 miles, but there are no other choices. The first part of the drive from Ftn Hills to Pine and Strawberry remain the same as the original route and it’s always scenic and a fun sports car road.
Hwy 260 to Camp Verde is scenic as well and a fun drive but it is a haven for ELK so be cautious and safe.

We will have a generous menu selection and billing by couples. For your convenience, here is a link to Little America. For GPS users, the Little America address is 2525 E. Butler Ave, Flagstaff, AZ 86004.

We will meet in Fountain Hills at the Target shopping center, please meet in front of the Target store. There are restrooms and a Starbucks in the lobby if you want coffee. The Target center is located at Shea Blvd and Saguaro Blvd in Ftn Hills. We will meet at 9:00 AM and depart at 9:15 AM and head north on Hwy 87 to Payson where we will take a 15-minute comfort break at the gas station near the casino. We will continue north on highway 87 up the rim and to Pine & Strawberry. Approximately 5 miles north of Strawberry there is a sign for hwy 260 west and turn left there and that will take us to Camp Verde and Interstate 17. Get on 17 north to Flagstaff about 55 miles and as you get closer to Flagstaff stay in the right two lanes to exit # 340A to merge onto Interstate 40 to Albuquerque and then take exit # 198, Butler Ave to Little America which will be down that road a short distance ahead and on your right. We’ll be in the main dining room.

Please have a full fuel tank at the start and  bring your club radio, club’s name badge and this guide. We can get fuel at Little America after lunch for the return trip.

There are a few different routes to return to the Valley: the same way we went up or take I 17 all the way home or you can take Oak Creek Canyon down to Sedona and from Sedona there are two alternate routes, consult your state map which we recommend you bring with you on every club tour.  we can discuss this toward the end of the luncheon and everyone is free to pair up with whomever they wish and select whatever route you prefer. In any case, this is usually a full day of driving and some socializing.

Please send me your RSVP.
