Visiting Arizona

The Grand Canyon is all Arizona needed for natural-wonder status, but beauties like the Sonoran Desert and curiosities like the Petrified Forest don’t hurt its cause. Check out Sedona for a host of wonders, from the towering Cathedral Rock to the beautiful Chapel of the Hoy Cross, built right into the red stone buttes of the desert. Flagstaff is home to some of the best-preserved cave dwellings in the country at spots like the Walnut Canyon National Monument and Montezuma Castle National Monument. Even the sun favors this state: Phoenix enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine each year—explaining its obsession with outdoor activities.

So whether you’re a first-timer or a frequent visitor, a business traveler or a budget explorer, IgoUgo has all the travel-planning tools and resources you need to create a memorable vacation. Read traveler reviews of the top hotels, restaurants, and things to do, browse... Read More
