Arizona Cities and Regions

Greater Phoenix

Also known as the Valley of the Sun, this 2,000-square-mile area spills over the Sonoran Desert from Phoenix to include some two-dozen outlying communities like chic Scottsdale and youth-infused Tempe. See our Phoenix Travel Guide

Grand Canyon

Gouged by the Colorado River over millions of years, this awe-inspiring canyon measures 277 miles long and over a mile deep in some places. Visitors flock to its eponymous national park primarily to hike the chasm’s depth, though many come just to peer over the edge. See our Grand Canyon Travel Guide


Radiant red canyons, green forests, desert vegetation, and brilliant blue skies comprise the picturesque Red Rock Country of this delightful town, which serves as a spiritual retreat, resort mecca, outdoorsman’s playground, and artistic center. See our Sedona Travel Guide


This onetime mining center overlooking Sedona’s red-rock country had deteriorated to a mere ghost town before being lovingly restored by local craftspeople and artists.


Arizona’s second largest city is popular for Mexican cuisine, cultural and nature museums, and outdoor recreation options like hiking, biking, and bird-watching in Saguaro National Park.


“The town too tough to die,” once a rough-and-tumble mining center, today bases its livelihood largely on accommodating tourists who come in search of remnants of its Wild West past.

Navajo and Hopi Reservations

Explore the legacy of the area’s original inhabitants at these reservations in northern Arizona; don’t miss sites like Monument Valley and Canyon de Chelly National Monument.


This former railroad town, set at a 7,000-foot mountainside elevation, offers a good selection of accommodations and an easy base for attractions like the nearby Grand Canyon, a trio of national monuments, sections of historic Route 66, and even winter sports like skiing and snowshoeing.

Lake Powell

Visualize the red-rock-gilded Grand Canyon filled with 8.5-trillion gallons of turquoise-blue water and you’ll have a spot-on image of Lake Powell, the second largest man-made reservoir in the United States and a hotspot for camping and watersports.

Lake Havasu

Some 3 hours southeast of Sin City, nestled amid craggy mountain peaks alongside the Colorado River, Lake Havasu boasts over 400 miles of coastline and water sports galore – think fishing, skiing, kayaking, and boating (boat and Jet Ski rentals are available). On-land activities span from beach-bumming, off-roading desert treks, and golfing to horseback riding, hot-air ballooning, rock climbing, and biking.
