Arizona, the name itself inspires images of sun-drenched desert cities, spas and dazzling resorts. Experience Old West legends, Native American and Hispanic heritage, adventurous guest ranches, shopping, sports and much more. Blessed with bright sunshine and fine weather year round, Arizona has some of the most varied landscapes on the planet. Endless places in which to fish, sail, swim, peddle, paddle or even just sit around and be amazed. Climb into the sky by balloon or hang-glider, explore the depths of great caves, go white-water rafting or put miles between you and civilization on horseback or in the comfort of a roof down convertible.
Arizona is regarded as the birthplace of desert-style golf and is also home to many alpine fairways and more traditional courses – over 300 offering a tee to suit all tastes. As well as its many campgrounds and cabins, Arizona also offers some more unusual places to bed down including houseboats on Lake Powell, Navajo hogans near Monument Valley and yurts at Lyman Lake State Park. Whatever you are looking for in a holiday the chances are you'll find it in the Grand Canyon State.
