February 25, 2008

The Guide is designed for readers to obtain a sense of the state’s unexpectedly exhilarating signature scenery, endless opportunities, open-air lifestyle and timeless discoveries. The OSVG’s magazine format contains stories written by professional travel writers about the unique experiences visitors can find in Arizona. In addition, themed sections throughout the Guide feature information on statewide events, sightseeing opportunities, outdoor activities, art showings and culinary experiences. Tips are also available on how to take the perfect photograph, how to reach interesting places to visit that are off the typical tourist path, and how to buy items such as Native American art.

"This week, we are releasing one of our most valuable tourism resources,” said Margie A. Emmermann, director of the Arizona Office of Tourism. “This Guide captures the imagination of travelers, and encourages them to discover Arizona’s vibrant destinations.”

The accompanying map includes valuable travel and tourist information, including a detailed listing of campgrounds and recreational areas, information on the state’s Native American lands, a listing of Arizona’s designated Scenic Roads and travel tips for each of the states five regions.

The Guide is available for online viewing at To obtain a complimentary copy of the Official State Visitor’s Guide, log on to or call the Arizona Office of Tourism at (866) 298-3312.

Created as an executive agency in 1975, the Arizona Office of Tourism is charged with enhancing the state economy and the quality of life for all Arizonans by expanding travel activity and increasing related revenues through tourism promotion and development. AOT works to serve the Grand Canyon State’s travel industry and related businesses, the traveling public, and the taxpayers of Arizona.
