A few top contenders for your must-visit list are The Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Horseshoe Bend in the tiny town of Page, and, if you’re feeling lucky, you can enter the permit lottery to be one of the 64 people that are allowed to hike The Wave per day.
The Arizona desert temperatures can vary significantly in one day, so light layers will be your best friend. If you’re setting out on a hike, be sure to pack accordingly with adequate water (it is desert after all), energy-sustaining snacks, comfortable hiking-appropriate footwear, sunscreen, a hat and your sense of adventure.
Like a swimsuit, there’s no one size fits all approach to Arizona.
