CONNECTING TO CULTURE

Experiences

Heritage & Culture

The region that became Arizona was inhabited well before statehood. Tour the ancient ruins of American Indian sites, visit historic missions and witness Wild West reenactments.

Across the state, you'll find ruins of villages, ancient structures, and missions founded by indigenous tribes, and later European settlers and Catholic missionaries. Of course, who can forget Arizona's Wild West history?

Arizona's modern culture, seen in its cities and arts, continue to be influenced by those who came before with plenty of room for innovation.
