Valle is a census-designated place in Coconino County, Arizona, United States. As of the 2010 US Census the population of Valle was 832. It lies at an altitude of 5,994 feet (1,827 m),[1] at the junction of U.S. Route 180 and State Route 64. Its attractions include the Valle Airport (40G), the Planes of Fame Air Museum, and Flintstones Bedrock City. Motorcar tourists often stop at the town on their way to the Grand Canyon from either Williams or Flagstaff, as it is approximately at the halfway point.

Description[edit]

Valle is not included on many roadmaps, including the Rand McNally Road Atlas annual series.[2] The town sits to the west of the highway intersections, with some streets to the east of US 180. More recent online aerial photography maps alone reveal the enormous airport, and what appears to be an extensive subdivision layout, about 20 city blocks in length and width, but with only a few houses or trailers scattered around the many desert-lawned streets. The area of Valle, Arizona has the appearance of subdivided roads due to a planned community in which 1-acre (4,000 m2) lots were sold during the early 1960s. These roads are all dirt with the exception of the two main highways (US 180 and AZ 64). With the exception of a few property owners who have set up camp on their land, the area has not been developed.

Valle maintains no website. It has two main gas stations, several gift shops, and a small post office.
