Arizona at a Glance
Flagstaff is a perfect take-off point for several day trips to diverse settings.
The quality of life in Flagstaff is about as close to Utopia as one can
get; it is voted annually as one of the top cities in which to live.
Situated at the foothills of the San Francisco Peaks at an elevation of
7,000 feet, Flagstaff offers four unique seasonal climates providing for superb hiking,
skiing, camping and outdoor recreation opportunities, in addition to its rich and diverse
art and cultural attractions and friendly and warm hospitality.
A replica pioneer village depicts 19th century life on I-17 just north of the city.
The 'Valley of the Sun' has become a popular nickname for Phoenix and
its adjacent suburbs; where sunshine dominates the weather more than 300 days a year.
Fall and spring are the best times to visit Phoenix, when the
temperatures are mild and the crowds are minimal.

Tourism is a major contributor to Tucson's prominence, with 10 percent of all jobs
dedicated to the Tucson tourism industry.
Approximately 60 miles from the border of Mexico, and with a good
number of ghost towns situated in between, Tucson has a somewhat eccentric flair
distinguishing it from the more formal atmosphere of Phoenix, the state capital.
Tucson is a perfect year-round destination with both cultural and
outdoor activities running around the calendar.

The Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon: by Kathryn Lemmon.
Photos and descriptions hardly do justice to the vast, multi-colored
canyon walls sculpted
from the earth over the millennia by the mighty Colorado River.
Visit Monument Valley: by Peggy Bechko.

there, unless you happen to own a small plane.

More Than Just a Barren Desert: by Chris Tourigny.
For many travelers, Phoenix,
Arizona conjures up visions of barren deserts, sand dunes and tumbleweeds. In all
actuality, it's quite the opposite.
Sentinal of the Sonoran Desert: by Catt Foy.
Located in central and southern Arizona, and parts of northern Mexico,
