Arizona’s namesake—the Grand Canyon—is also its most distinguishable landmark. Millennia in the making, the canyon is vast, beautiful and well-deserving of its name. Most may view it from an overlook at the rim, but there are so many more ways to see the Grand Canyon—hiking, rafting the river below, or on horseback.

Diverse wildlife and varied habitats make Arizona an extraordinary destination for hunters and anglers of all types—from fly-fishing aficionados to avid elk hunters. That same variety can be found in the state’s many golf courses, ranging from desert target-style courses to links courses and alpine fairways.
