Sunny Arizona is known for its hot climate, but the dry heat does not deter tourists from venturing the state. In fact, Arizona got travelers covered from accommodation, tourist sites and cuisines, among many others. In a word, you can say that this sunny state has everything from A to Z. Did you get it? Because Arizona is known as AZ.
Engaged yourself with some Arizona activities like boating, kayaking, fishing, or hiking. For a desert environment, Arizona got some lakes and rivers perfect for boating or fishing set in amazing rock formations and picturesque landscapes. Head to Lake Havasu, the "Personal Watercraft Capital of the World," or at Prescott's for some hiking gig. The Grand Canyon still, however, is the best hiking trail to take foot. All in all, Arizona will pack your day with loads of activities.
Art and Culture
If you're an art enthusiast, you'll find an array of galleries and museums catering to Arizona's culture. There are even self-guided art tours during First Fridays. The top galleries and museum to visit are Heard Museum, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art: SMoCA, Phoenix Art Museum, and MOCA: Museum of Contemporary Art Tucson. You can also head to art communities like Sedona, Jerome, and Bisbee. For some old west action, no other place than Arizona's Old West you can experience something like that.
Arizona is a foodie's paradise. From Mexico's taco and chili-based snacks to high-end restaurants with their baby back ribs all sautéed with wine and soy. Dig in some of their ribs and grilled chicken in BBQ sauce, and you'll be okay. But if you want a more meaningful experience, go to Mesa's Fresh Foodie Trail, especially in Agritopia to get you a sense of where your food comes from. USA Today writes that Agritopia is a "fascinating and delicious route to the county's best local offerings."
Did the desert heat and all of that venturing of yours get you tired? Arizona keeps you refreshed with all of its spa and yoga services. The Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort and Spa is an amazing boutique experience nestled in Camelback Mountain away from the crowd. That way, you can totally rest in a tranquil place. The Scott Resort & Spa is almost like an oasis of relaxation. You can also venture to nearby museums to refresh your mind. Above anything else, try the Arizona goat yoga. It'll be a unique experience ever to have.
Do you want to know about brews and wines? Arizona has a couple of local microbreweries that will keep you interested in knowing all about booze. The Salt Mine Cellars serves the best pizza and beer while you get to listen to artists performing Friday and Saturday nights. Meanwhile, the Gordon Biersch Brewery offers its German-style lagers in its upscale dining establishment.
All in all, Arizona is one place you shouldn't miss during the summer. You can find more info about the state on their website.
