Arizona is a beautiful state filled with plenty to do.  Below find five of our favorite destinations.

Grand Canyon

This vast natural formation, often considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, is actually a gorge carved out of the region's sandstone bluffs by the Colorado River.  


People flock from all over the world to experience Sedona's gorgeous sandstone formations. In the rosy glow of sunrise and sunset, the rocks appear even more brilliant.

Hoover Dam

This feat of modern engineering was constructed in 1931 and completed during the presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt. It was constructed as a means by which to contain the flooding of the Colorado River, as well as to provide water to the desert inhabitants surrounding it.
