Arizona Travel Tips
Sure it's cheesy to proclaim, but Arizona is a state that puts the grand in Grand Canyon. A land of magnificent purple sunsets, it's a place where you can kick off your boots and sing by the campfire amid looming saguaro cacti. A place where leathery old-timers spin yarns about the bad old days - shootouts and outlaws, ladies of the night and the thrill of striking gold.
And it's a place filled with hope, where the heart of the Old West still beats strong, where somehow Native American tribes have managed to survive, and where tourists can learn about their long, tumultuous history.
