An Introduction to Our Hometown
This month I wanted to reach out to the summer vibes of traveling and summer vacations. Some of you may or may not know where we are located or that we are a store. So here is a brief introduction to us and then I will tell you guys all about the amazing vacation destination that we call home.
We are Urban Homestead Boutique! We are all types of refurbished, and shabby chic, with a touch of fancy pants, and a bit of sass thrown in! We love to find old dilapidated items that have been used and loved at one point. We bring them in give them a little or a lot of TLC and then send them home with a new and loving family! We also love to explore all the different areas of our imaginations and creativity! We have an amazing group of girls that love to explore and create all kinds of things! We are definitely the place to go if you have an idea of what you want but can not seem to find exactly it! Come on in and we can MAKE it JUST FOR YOU!!
Enough about us! Lets talk about how amazing our little mountain town is! Though I'm sure we are mostly known for being the hometown of the NAU Lumberjacks, we are so much more!
Here are just a few of the fun things we have here in Flagstaff. If you are a visitor I would defiantly recommend checking out some of these beautiful places. Also please stop by and say HI to us girls here at the store! We love chit chatting with our customers and finding out where your from!
First we have Lowell Observatory! This place is out of this world! ( I know bad joke).The Lowell Observatory was founded in 1894. There are several different tour options dependent on the times and days you would like to be there. Ticket prices run anywhere from $30.00- $500.00 depending on what it is you want to do. Visit lowell.edu for more information and details. This is an awesome place for the kiddos, as a family, or for the grown up nerds like me!

They have day trips you can partake in such as camping and hiking trips, rafting and many more! These tickets run anywhere from $75.00 to $3900.00. They also have amazing kids programs, such as camps ans STEM every 2nd Sat. of the month. The camps run $165.00-$200.00 depending on dates, times, and age groups.
