ARIZONA

ARIZONA

Where warm weather and cool culture collide

Things are different in the desert. The sky is bigger. The stars are brighter. The sunsets stop you in your tracks. It’s a feeling that can’t be conjured, landscaped or kindled with twinkling bulbs. 

Arizona’s history is a testament to the spirit of puebloans, ranchers, miners and visionaries. Phoenix is projected against this rich backdrop in urban sophistication. Stadiums and arenas worthy of the world’s biggest sports spectacles. Restaurants with equally inspiring cuisine and views. In the heart of the Sonoran Desert, Scottsdale welcomes you with the energy of a sophisticated city on the move. Oh, and then there’s that whole Grand Canyon thing.  You may have heard of it.  

This place puts the AZ in amazing.

Destination Highlights

SUNSETS

Arizona boasts some of the best sunsets in the world (scroll up if you don't believe us). Our favorite way to view them? From a hot air balloon.

LANDMARKS AND MUSEUMS

Arizona hosts several historic landmarks and museums. From more than a dozen Frank Lloyd Wright sites, to the Desert Botanical Gardens, to some big hole in ground we keep hearing about...

SEDONA

The Sedona Visitors Bureau claims Sedona is the most beautiful place on earth, and who are we to argue with them? Pristine red rock buttes, steep canyon walls, and emerald pine forests all a day trip away from Phoenix and Scottsdale.

GET OUTSIDE!

Don't let the heat scare you. Besides - we all know it's a dry heat. No matter what kind of enthusiast you are, there's enough outdoor adventure for everyone. From biking to horseback riding to river kayaking, there's plenty to keep your body moving.
