Understanding Travel and Tourism Benefits

4 Things To Do During Your Arizona Vacation

Arizona is a beautiful state with a lot of history. No matter what your vacation style is, you are sure to find what you're looking for when you take a trip to Arizona. Use the following tips to ensure that you see all that Arizona has to offer when you visit:

See the Grand Canyon

No trip to Arizona would be complete without seeing the Grand Canyon. It is a natural wonder that is unsurpassed in beauty. The canyon is only a few hour drive from Phoenix, so a day trip is technically possible, but in order to completely enjoy the Grand Canyon, you should plan on staying at least one night. If you are a hiker, there is no shortage of hiking trails. If you want to see as much of the Grand Canyon as possible but don't hike, you can ride the trails on a mule.

Take an Old West Tour

Arizona is synonymous with the Old West, and even in this day and age, you can still get a feel for what that period of time was like. If you're in the Phoenix area, there are several opportunities to experience the Old West east of the Valley. You may want to consider arranging a tour of the Superstition Mountains, where many miners sought to make their fortune by mining for gold.

In Southern Arizona, consider booking an Old West tour in Tombstone, where the OK Corral is located. Tombstone is a well preserved Old Western town, and many people believe that the buildings may be haunted by the spirits of those who lived during the height of the Old West period.

Enjoy a Stay at a Luxury Resort

There are numerous luxury resorts in the metro Phoenix area, any of which are the perfect place to stay if you want to indulge yourself and relax. Phoenix is called the Valley of the Sun for good reasons-- most days are sunny and bright, so you are sure to enjoy your resort's pools. Most of the luxury resorts in the Phoenix area also have first-class spas, so don't forget to book a massage or another type of spa treatment.

Explore Sedona

Located just a few hours north of Phoenix, Sedona is a magical place surrounded by vibrant red rocks. Many people believe that there are energy vortexes in Sedona, so it is considered a very spiritual area. There are a number of tours and activities available in Sedona, and no shortage of delicious restaurants.
