Experience Arizona’s stunning beauty from your very own vacation home
For adventure lovers, Arizona (AZ) is an ideal vacation destination given the sheer variety of outdoor attractions and activities the state has on offer. The Grand Canyon is one such destination, but the famous attraction, located approximately 230 miles north of the capital Phoenix, is certainly not the only thing to see in Arizona.
The beauty of Arizona lies in its diversity—from deserts to snow-capped mountains, from historic sites to arts and culture, there is so much to do whilst on vacation here. The spectacular landscapes also make it an excellent place for road trips.
Hot air ballooning, canyoning, water sports, and horseback riding are just a few of the activities you can try. Staying in a vacation home will enhance the entire experience, as it will feel like you have a place of your own to kick back after a long day of adventure.
Flying into Arizona
Despite a profusion of smaller airports, Arizona's main entry point is the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. You could either utilize the SKOOT airport shuttles to downtown Phoenix, or take a taxi directly to your Arizona vacation rental. The Tucson International Airport is another point of entry. For maximum comfort and convenience, you could rent a car at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport or Tucson International Airport.
Did you know that North America's oldest food traditions can be traced to Arizona? The desert state regales foodies with its sumptuous Southwestern food. Head to Tucson where enchiladas, burritos and tacos reign supreme. There's everything from upscale Mexican delights to quaint burrito stands, all of which you can take home to enjoy at your vacation rental in Arizona.
How about some fried cactus? The edible cacti of Arizona has found its way into salads too! In all of Arizona's cities, you'll find home-made soups, chilli hotdogs, craft beers, wild boar sausages, pot roast dinners, wings, red lobsters, Black Angus beef preparations and more.
Arizona's climate and the best time to visit
The southern region of Arizona has a desert climate with mild winters and hot summers. The northern region, with its canyons and mountain ranges, has a more moderate climate and even experiences snowfall in the winter.
Owing to such different weather conditions, the peak travel season in Arizona differs depending on where you are heading. If you plan to visit the Grand Canyon, summer is the most popular time. Fall and spring are considered good times to visit if you truly want to explore the outdoors.
Things to do and see in Arizona
Arizona's claim to fame is the astonishing Grand Canyon, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. It sprawls across 277 miles, plunging over 6,000 feet down into the valley below. Discover a world of hidden eco systems, caves and animal life here. The Glen Canyon National Recreation Area comes in close second with its desert vistas, cool blue waters and dramatic stone walls. This area is best explored using the town of Page as a base. Don't miss the Hoover Dam, one of the world's greatest engineering marvels, a concrete arch in the Colorado River which towers over 700ft high.
Apart from Arizona's natural and man-made wonders, its cities are also worth visiting for their unique attributes. Take your pick and create an itinerary based on your interests. Phoenix boasts a lively downtown, and an abundance of galleries and museums. The deeply spiritual, high-energy town of Sedona offers its guests everything from hiking and biking, to Jeep tours, culinary trips, shopping and rejuvenation. Tee off at some of the world's classiest golf courses in Scottsdale, a city regaled for its spa culture. Younger travelers will relish the buzz at the university town of Tempe. Arizona is also home to 22 Native American tribes that have contributed immensely to the state's rich culture, history and economy.
