What to See and Do in Arizona

The biggest tourist attraction in Arizona is the Grand Canyon, a steep canyon in northwestern Arizona that was formed by the Colorado River. The canyon is an incredible feat of nature that you truly have to see to believe. The North Rim of the canyon closes for the winter, but the South Rim is open to visitors year-round.

Arizona has many other natural attractions to behold, like the gorgeous red rock formations in Sedona, the giant cacti in the Sonoran Desert, and the forestry and wildlife in the Bearizona Wildlife Park. Native American culture is celebrated in museums like the Heard Museum in Phoenix and the Smoki Museum in Prescott.

Best Time to Book a Flight to Arizona

The southern part of Arizona is largely desert, so cities like Phoenix, Tucson and Yuma experience very hot summers and mild to warm winters. From June to August, temperatures can reach as high as 45°C. Many tourists choose to skip the uncomfortable warmth and visit between November and April.

Cities in northern Arizona like Kingman and Flagstaff still experience hot summers, but also see cold and snow in the winters. Temperatures are generally the most comfortable in the fall, from September to November.
