Arizona

What is there to see in Arizona? Why, the Grand Canyon, of course, for o­ne thing!

Arizona has a lot to offer everywhere you go. The Grand Canyon is a beautiful natural wonder consisting of 277 miles of steep, rocky walls which descend more than a mile to the canyon’s floor. At the bottom lies the Colorado River which runs a swift course southwest. It is a sight not to be missed! The South Rim of the Canyon is the most popular area and can easily be reached from Flagstaff or Williams.

Grand Canyon
Once you travel to Arizona and have seen the wondrous Grand Canyon, you may wonder what else you can see and do in Arizona.

The state of Arizona is located in the southwestern portion of the United States. Arizona has a rich Native American history and is home to more than twenty-two Native American tribes. You can visit the Native American reservations and be enthralled with the culture and view the fine varied artistry being made and sold. The Hopi Culture Center is located in Second Mesa, near Sedona, for example. There, you can see Oraibi, the westernmost Hopi pueblo, which is the oldest continuously inhabited settlement in America.

For the art buff, in Old Town Scottsdale and Phoenix, there are dozens of art galleries to lose yourself in. Sedona is Arizona’s original artist’s community. It is at the top of any art lover's destination, while historic Jerome has also become home for many artists and artisans.

The performing arts also has an important place in Arizona's cultural attractions. The Audrey Auditorium is o­n the Northern Arizona University campus. There, you can attend concerts by the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra in addition to lectures, dance recitals, touring shows and other public attractions.

Lower Ribbon Falls, Grand Canyon
If Old Western folklore is your interest, you can find it in Southern Arizona, rooted in Tucson. This is where the U.S. Cavalry fought against Geronimo and Cochise. Hollywood films were made o­n location at Old Tucson Studios. The best way to explore Tucson is by taking a downtown walking tour which includes the Presidio, Barrio Viejo, El Tiradito Wishing Shrine, and St. Augustine Cathedral.

Sights to see, indeed!
