Here You Are
In many ways, Arizona's beauty is embodied by its most famous natural landmark, the Grand Canyon; but there is so much more to the Grand Canyon State than its namesake. Arizona is vast and ancient, with a history defined by American Indians, larger-than-life adventurers, and diverse landscapes.
In addition to the Grand Canyon, Arizona contains 21 national parks and monuments and 45 national historic landmarks—and more than 22 sovereign Tribal communities call these lands their home. Most everyone is familiar with Arizona's red-rock buttes, pulled-taffy canyons and cactuses; however, there are also plenty of whitewater rivers, snow-crusted mountain peaks, ponderosa pine forests, blue lakes, and sandy beaches.
Combine outdoor exploration and urban culture when you visit Arizona. Solo travellers or groups can book experienced adventure companies to tour some of Arizona's most beautiful places—from Jeep tours in Sedona to float trips on the Colorado River and horseback treks in Monument Valley. Or visit the cosmopolitan centers of Phoenix, Scottsdale or Tucson for museum visits, high-end shopping and memorable meals.
So, sure, the Grand Canyon—one of the seven natural wonders of the world—is something no visitor to Arizona should miss. But it's far from the only thing that makes Arizona grand.
