When people think of the American Southwest, they can’t help but think of Arizona with its quintessential Southwestern scenes filled with mesmerizing landscapes and natural attractions. While the state does have its endless stretches of flat, tumbleweed-strewn regions, the state also boasts spectacular geological sights and features that you’ll want to check out. Here are 10 of the most scenic spots in Arizona.
1. Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon is a site like no other, which is why it is visited by thousands of world travelers each year. Carved over millennia by the mighty Colorado River, this canyon is the ideal place for sightseeing, Southwestern style. You can also book a river rafting trip or hike into the canyon with a guide or on burros. Make sure you view the canyon at dawn and dusk, as the light play from the rim is breathtaking at those times.
