Cheap flights to Arizona

Nature takes the stage in Arizona, a state in the south-western United States, which brings tourists to break out in wonder at its stunning surroundings. Those out for adventures can take off for the Grand Canyon, Cathedral, and other scenic spots that number among the most fascinating outdoor destinations in the United States. In between these attractions is the long stretch of historic Route 66, which is the great road for road trips and detours to countryside towns.

Noted for its desert climate, Arizona is the land of scorching summers and mild winters. Other than its majestic natural features, there are ski resorts in the areas of Flagstaff, Alpine, and Tucson. About one-quarter of the state is also made up of Native American reservations, where the indigenous people of the United States live. Tourists can visit here with permission and witness the daily lives of various intriguing peoples. Such is the round of attractions that Arizona offers, making it one of the best outdoor and cultural areas to visit.

What to see & do

The Grand Canyon looks amazing on picture, but one cannot prepare for the sight of it in real life. As one of the world's seven natural wonders, the region of Grand Canyon is just mesmerising to see at any time of the day, whether it is shrouded in light and shadow at sunset or sheened with gradually brightening sunlight at sunrise. It is divided between the more majestic and dramatic sights of the South Rim, and the fewer overlooks of the North Rim. Hiking here is a delight, as one can also glimpse here the Colorado River, which shaped the curvaceous gorge for centuries. Tourists can also follow the paths set by Native Americans thousands of years before, retracing steps in this beautiful place that once went over the same earth.

From here, tourists can venture to Kaibab National Forest, a 1.6 million-acre forest that can be peaceful after hiking through the Grand Canyon with multitudes of other tourists. The forest features thick stands of ponderosa dominating the higher elevations, while piñon and juniper make the air fragrant. More outdoor recreation can be enjoyed here, from hiking and mountain biking to camping. Some of the often-used trails here are the Tusayan Bike Trail and the Grandview Lookout Tower. Horseback riding is also offered here, which can add to the experience of traversing through this wild, untamed part of Arizona.

Those interested in interacting with other cultures can turn to the Navajo Reservation. This area of north-eastern Arizona is beautiful to visit, where one can catch a sight of the Monument Valley's crimson red buttes, walk in dinosaur tracks, or stare at the beauty of Antelope Canyon. From here, tourists can visit the Navajo National Monument, well-preserved Ancestral Puebloan cliffs of Betatkin and Keet Seel. Maintained by the National Park Service, one will find here a free campground with first-come, first-served sites. The Explore Navajo Interactive Museum is also a place not to miss, where visitors can find out more about this part of Arizona, the people, and their traditions.

How to get around within Arizona

Tourists in Arizona can get around easily in the cities with its networks of city buses and trains.
