Adventures in Arizona
With everything that's happened over the last year, domestic travel has seen a considerable increase. There are many options, and Arizona should be on the top of your list.
Arizona has captured the minds of people around the United States. In particular, the sprawling desert complete with sand, cacti, and scorpions has captured the public imagination. That being said, the state provides a wide variety of attractions.
This article will cover 8 of the best places for your next exciting visit to Arizona. These attractions are selected to be fun, memorable, and reasonably priced (or free). Check them out on your next Arizona adventure!
We will start with an attraction that is entirely contrary to the typical imagery regarding Arizona - The London Bridge at Lake Havasu. This gorgeous bridge and lake are accessible to the eyes and a great place for romance.
Next up, we have a gorgeous national monument. Serving as an actual art piece, Montezuma Castle is jaw-dropping. You need to check out on your Arizona trip.
Monument Valley is an excellent place to have an adventure if you want to explore a vast sandy landscape. When the sun hits the rocks, the resulting shadows create picturesque scenery. You will also enjoy gazing at the towers — some of which are up to 1000 feet high!
Saguaro National Park
This iconic Arizona park is named after the Saguaro cactus. With over 150 miles of trails, this is the perfect place to visit for those excited to explore the desert wilderness.
The Town of Sedona
If you want to experience the culture of the local Native Americans, The Town of Sedona is an excellent stop. The sacred area is surrounded by 1.8 million acres of national forest and consists of various shops and art galleries. You can take a quick hike and get an expansive view of the landscape.
Tumacacori National Historical Park
If you are fascinated by Spanish culture, you need to check out Tumacacori National Historical Park. Unlike many old buildings, each of the three mission communities hasn't been rebuilt. You get to explore historical ruins that were abandoned after 19th century Apache raids. It sounds like an adventure!
White House Ruins
The White House Ruins is located at Canyon De Chelley and is genuinely one of the most awe-inspiring places in Arizona. We highly recommend taking a guided tour through the areas. You will have a memorable adventure and be able to take lots of stunning pictures.
Though this list provides a wide variety of attractions, we decided to end by including a place representing idyllic desert Arizona. This place is the Sonoran desert, a landscape that stretches out over 10,000 miles. Be warned, though — the countryside is known as the hottest in the entire United States. Rainfall is also frequent, which results in varied vegetation. If you want an authentic Arizona adventure, look no further than this exciting landscape.
