Arizona usually conjures images of prickly iguanas and scuttling beetles basking in the sun. However, the Sunset State is much more than desert. Arizona resorts and hotels can show you the best of this diverse locale, from the heights of the San Francisco Mountains to the valleys of the Colorado River. After your visit, you’ll be dreaming of Sonoran-style chile colorado and snow-capped mountain peaks.
While the Grand Canyon State is aptly nicknamed, you’ll also discover huge, evergreen forests and mountain ranges reaching over 2 miles above sea level. In the winter, you can also find world-class ski resorts in Arizona—even in the south! Take a snow break and head into the mountains from Flagstaff to Tucson to find a surprising winter wonderland. Prefer to get your workout on a different kind of trail? Explore the red rock formations and alpine tundra of northern Arizona at the Coconino National Forest. Take the Humphreys Peak Trail to the highest point in Arizona, or walk the scenic loop on the Bear Jaw Trail for a view of the Grand Canyon, 70 miles in the distance. Of course, you can see it up close as well and stay in a Grand Canyon hotel! If you’re looking for man-made wonders, southern Arizona is your ticket to fun. Check out museums, botanical gardens, and more from your Phoenix hotel. Plus, you can see those iguanas and beetles at the Sonoran Desert National Monument.
