Palatki Ruins

An archeological site you won't want to pass up is the Palatki World Heritage Site. It's worth the visit! These Sinagua cliff dwellings, as well as a series of pictographs on the cliff-sides are very impressive.

Grand Canyon National Park

In the Northern part of the state, Grand Canyon National Park is where Arizona gets its "nickname" - the Grand Canyon State!

Still another sight that must not be missed... have we said that before in all of our recommendations?!

It has been carved out through history, with the Colorado River running through 227 miles at its bottom. The views into its mile-plus depths are exquisite.

Arizona Sonora Desert Museum

Located west of Tucson, in the Tucson Mountains. The Arizona Sonora Desert Museum is another need-to visit when in Arizona. Particularly so when in Tucson. It's a living museum - a natural teaching museum, in that you learn with no struggle at all!

It's sort of half museum and half natural wild-life zoo. Their specialty is the Sonoran Desert. They also go into the geology of the earth, in particular as how it relates to Arizona.

Their interactive exhibits are what really make this museum fantastic! See raptors fly right by you to their roost. Enter the humming bird exhibit. You'll see these delightful birds flit on by - back and forth, right next to your head!

So much more to view! Check it out!! More here>

Arizona State Parks

There are 31 State Parks in Arizona. Where will you be visiting? Figure out the near-by state parks that may interest you! No regrets for that! They're a varied, educational, economical and fun plan for visiting Arizona attractions.

In Western Arizona you'll find Alamo Lake, Buckskin Mountain, Cattail Cove, Lake Havasu, River Island, Yuma Quartermaster Depot and Yuma Territorial Prison. Many are near Yuma or along the California border - incorporating the Colorado River.

In the North of the state - generally North of Phoenix - you'll find Dead Horse Ranch, Fort Verde, Homlovi, Jerome, Red Rock, Riordan Mansion, Slide Rock and Verde River Greenway.

The Eastern area of the state encompasses the areas east to Northeast of Phoenix, and just north of Tucson. Here are Boyce Thompson Arboretum, Catalina, Fool Hollow Lake, Lost Dutchman, Lyman Lake, McFarland, Oracle, and Tonto Natural Bridge.

Then there's the Southern part of Arizona. With the exception of Picacho Peak, which is about 1/2 hour drive north of Tucson along Interstate 10 - think of the section of the state being South of Tucson. The parks in this area are Kartchner Caverns, Patagonia Lake, Roper Lake, San Rafael Ranch, Sonoita Creek, Tombstone Courthouse, and Tubac Presidio.

As you're able, plan for some time in each of these great parks!
