Tuba City is in Northern Arizona.


Tuba City is the largest settlement on the Arizona side of the Navajo Nation. There is little to detain the traveler, but it makes a good refueling stop on the way from Monument Valley to the Grand Canyon.

Get in[edit]

Tuba City is on U.S. Route 160, about 100 miles north of Flagstaff.

Get around[edit]




  • Tuba Trading Post. Far and away the biggest shop in Tuba, this shop dates back to 1905 and has a wide, well-presented selection of souvenirs from the area, including authentic Indian crafts. Tucked away in the back is a small grocery store for the locals.


  • Hogan Restaurant (At the Quality Inn). Casual food. Price and quality quite OK. No real other choices unfortunately.
  • Kate's Cafe. Sandwiches, soups, burgers, salads and similar all-American fare (no Navajo food here). It's not much to get to excited about, but it's cheap and portions are big. $5-10.
  • Sze Chuan RestaurantHighway 160. Chinese food options.


As Tuba is located within the reservation, it's a dry town, with no alcohol available.
