Arizona Office of Tourism Releases 2010 Official State Visitor’s Guide

Valuable Traveler Resource Produced at Zero Cost to State


PHOENIX (February 08, 2010) – The Arizona Office of Tourism (AOT) has released its 2010 Arizona Official State Visitor’s Guide! The publication is an essential travel resource that informs, entertains and encourages readers to discover why Arizona is a premier vacation destination. The guide will serve as the agency’s central consumer fulfillment tool.


Formatted in the style of a magazine, the articles are written by Arizona-based writers who infuse their travel experiences into the many articles written about tourist destinations located throughout the Grand Canyon State.  These articles celebrate Arizona’s wonderful tourism assets including scenic road trips, local cuisine, outdoor adventures, Native American heritage and Wild West history. 


“We are thrilled that the new edition of the official state’s visitor’s guide is now available to consumers,” said Sherry Henry, AOT director. “From the moment a potential visitor receives this guide, a wealth of Arizona travel information is at their fingertips and we are confident that they will use this publication to plan their next vacation to Arizona.”


Fully supported by advertising dollars, the 2010 Arizona Office State Visitor’s Guide was produced at no cost to the state. More than 450,000 copies were published along with 500,000 accompanying comprehensive maps. Complimentary copies of the guides and maps will be distributed in response to the agency’s consumer advertising campaigns, as well as to travel industry partners and at visitor information centers located throughout the state.


In addition to the informative articles, the guide features Arizona’s signature scenery– the majestic beauty of the Grand Canyon National Park, the inspiring views of the Sonoran Desert, and the breathtaking scenes of the state’s mountain vistas and lakes–that millions of visitors from around the world travel to see.  Also to be found in this guide is information on Arizona’s celebrated history, invigorating arts and culture, luxurious resorts, rejuvenating spas, championship golf courses, fine dining options and a wide-selection of shopping opportunities.


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.
