Grab the kids and pile into the car – it’s time to visit one of the most family-friendly attractions in Arizona! Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff is the place where Pluto was discovered nearly 100 years ago, and it’s still a delight for all ages. From stargazing on an open-air deck to looking through the exact telescope the Apollo 11 crew used for training, there’s so much to see and do here.
