Arizona

THE GRAND CANYON STATE

One of the “Seven Natural Wonders of the World”, the Grand Canyon attracts nearly five million visitors each year and Monument Valley’s sandstone monoliths have served as the breathtaking backdrop for many classic western films. This state with a tumultuous past was also the home of Geronimo and Cochise and set the scene for the “Gunfight at the OK Corral” where the score was finally settled between the Earps and the Clantons.

Long before the Wild West. Even before the extinction of saber-toothed cats and the mammoth. As far back as 12,000 years ago, indigenous cultures made their home in what, today, we affectionately call Arizona. These early inhabitants settled into villages throughout the diverse regions of Arizona, giving formation to tribes such as the Ancestral Puebloans, Hohokam, Mogollon, and Patayan people.

From the stirring beauty of the rugged Sonoran Desert to luxury resorts, chef-driven restaurants, and exciting activities or attractions, Scottsdale is bursting at the seams with the makings of a memorable extended weekend getaway. Spend a day in “old town” Old Town’s Rusty Spur offers live music every day and night by local talent like the Psychobilly Rodeo Band. >MORE
