Flagstaff is also home to stunning natural landmarks, such as the Meteor Crater and Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument.

Grand Canyon

There are a few things that you need to know about the Grand Canyon in Arizona. First, it is a National Park and also one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Second, it is 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide and a mile deep. Third, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Fourth, the Colorado River runs through it. And fifth, this makes this place one of the best spots that you could visit while traveling in Arizona.

There are two ways to see this natural wonder: bottom-up or top-down. You can either go hiking or take a mule ride on the national park trails or fly over by helicopter or small plane on an air tour with companies like Maverick Helicopters or Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters

You can also visit Tucson, the second-largest city in Arizona. The Spanish name of Tucson is “Tucsón,” but the English name and pronunciation are “too-sahn.” The population of Tucson is 535,677 people. Many people live in or have ancestors from Mexico, so you will find a strong Mexican-American presence in this city’s culture.

If you love Western history, then you should definitely take a trip to Tombstone. This city hosts an annual festival that celebrates its Wild West roots every October. You might even see gunfights on the streets if you go to Tombstone at this time! If not, there are always attractions such as Gunfight Palace and Big Nose Kate’s Saloon to keep you entertained throughout your stay.
