What to see in Arizona


Arizona is home to some of America's most striking natural landscapes, and is one of the best road tripping destinations in a country with a truly rich offering of road journeys. Long after its heyday, what remains of the iconic Route 66 still attracts droves of travellers through Arizona.

The state boasts some renowned wilderness areas, including Saguaro National Park, the Petrified Forest National Park, and the famous Grand Canyon National Park. Unique natural features in beautiful Arizona include Monument Valley, the backdrop for many a cowboy movie; Cathedral Rock and the other red rocks and peaks that form the backdrop to the desert town of Sedona; the 40,000-year-old Barringer Crater, the best preserved impact crater on Earth; the Canyon de Chelly, full of weird sandstone formations; and the breathtakingly blue Havasu Falls of the Grand Canyon.

The surprisingly colourful desert landscapes are interrupted by Wild West-style towns, old mining centres and Native American reserves, as well as the popular, sprawling cities of Phoenix and Tucson, full of resorts and top-quality modern amenities. Phoenix and Tucson, as well as charming Sedona, are chock full of interesting sightseeing attractions and act as the natural travel hubs for visitors to the state.
