Artists, hippies, and New Agers head for Bisbee, Jerome, and Sedona. Maybe touring Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West, Walpi (the oldest Hopi village on First Mesa), and the Four Corners region interests you. Seeing the deserts or buying a Navajo rug in Tuba City may be at the top of your Arizona wish-list list. And nearly everyone who comes off a flight to Arizona wants to see the Grand Canyon.
Wherever you go in Arizona, you’ll experience its diverse culture and history. One-third of the state belongs to Native Americans who have lived here for hundreds of years. Spanish explorers came through the area, followed by settlers. Once air-conditioning became popular, even more people settled in the desert regions.
From desolate deserts to sophisticated shops and galleries, whether you’re here to see the sights, relax, experience history, or rejuvenate your spirit, step off your Arizona flight and get ready for a truly memorable stay.

Driving is probably the best bet for travelling round Arizona. Tucson and Phoenix have public transport for commuters, which also go to some of the attractions, but driving in these cities is generally reasonable. Free parking is available outside of downtown Phoenix, although finding a parking space can take some time in Old Scottsdale and the more popular malls. In Tucson, parking spaces are relatively easy to find and the fees are low.
Depending on which area you decide to visit after coming off your Arizona flight, you may want to drive just to take in the scenery. However, Arizona is the sixth-largest state, so if you are short for time, you may want to take flights. There are regional airports in Mesa, Payson, Prescott, Sedona, Chandler, and Scottsdale, and regional commercial carriers to fly you across the state quickly.
