More Arizona Travel Information

From its rivers and forests to national parks and monuments to bustling Phoenix and suburban Tempe, Arizona is an expansive state boasting a wealth of things to see and do. The state is an industrial leader in labor, transportation, utilities and real estate. Scores of people flock to Grand Canyon National Park each year to see the natural wonder that is one mile deep and eighteen miles across. The Petrified Forest is home to millennium-old pieces of natural history, and Native American pueblos exemplify a vital part of the state's past. Rafting on the Colorado River is a popular pastime as is exploring ghost towns and desert vistas. An Old West favorite, the former mining town of Tombstone is a national historic site that features the OK Corral and Saloon and thrilling reenactments of the famous Earps and Doc Holiday versus the Clantons and McLaurys gunfight. The resort town of Lake Havasu boasts a real world treasure: the London Bridge, which was transported in more than 10,000 pieces from its namesake city. Other popular destinations include the Mormon Temple in Mesa, the natural beauty of Flagstaff, the wealthy, well-manicured Scottsdale, and the sunny college town of Tucson.
