Where To Go Vacationing In Arizona

By Amanda C Love

If you are looking for the perfect place to vacation this year, you should consider a trip to Arizona. Boasting attractions such as the Grand Canyon and vivid, postcard like scenery, there is something good for everyone to do while vacationing in Arizona.

Known as one of the seven natural wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon offers breath taking views to enjoy. If visiting during the summer months, you are likely to run into quite a crowd on the South Rim where most people gather. The South Rim is roughly 4,500 feet deep and has an elevation of 7,000 feet. Given that it is 10 miles across and 277 miles long, you might want to engage the help of a mule or ride a train when you are ready to wander.

Fall in Arizona is a wonderful place for bird watchers. You can enjoy hiking thorough one of many state parks while you look at the beautiful scenery and birds. Cochise County is known to be one of the finest bird watching locations in the whole United States. You can spot up to 400 various different bird species. A visit to the west coast of Arizona is likely to earn you a glimpse at some of the rarest birds in the country.

If gorgeous scenery is what you are looking for, then you have to stop in Sedona while you are there. The majestic red rock formations that you will find are simply breathtaking whether you are visiting during the summer months or looking at the red rocks with snow on them.

Visit one of the many Ghost Towns that will take you back to the 1800's when people from California came to the state for mining. You will even get to do some mining yourself at some of these towns so that you can feel what it was really like to live there so many years ago.

No matter if you live in Arizona or are just looking to visit, vacationing in Arizona is a adventure that the whole family will enjoy.
