Top 6 Arizona Adventures

By Jade Monzo, Owner, Rope Drop Travel January 27, 2024

Arizona has captured the minds and hearts of people around the United States. In particular, the sprawling desert complete with sand, cacti, and scorpions has captured the public imagination and it is one of the most visited places in the country for its awe-inspiring landscape. Check out six of the best places to visit on your next trip to Arizona. All of these attractions are selected to be fun, memorable, and reasonably priced, or even free!

The Town of Sedona

If you want to experience the culture of the local Native Americans, The Town of Sedona is an excellent stop. The sacred area is surrounded by 1.8 million acres of national forest and consists of a variety of shops and art galleries. You can take a quick hike and get an expansive view of the landscape. 

Sonoran Desert

The Sonoran Desert certainly represents the idyllic desert of Arizona. With a landscape that stretches out over 10,000 miles of sand, be warned, the countryside is known as the hottest in the entire United States. Rainfall is also frequent, which results in varied vegetation. If you want an authentic Arizona adventure, look no further than this exciting landscape.

Tumacacori National Historical Park

If you are fascinated by Spanish culture, you need to check out Tumacacori National Historical Park. Unlike many old buildings, each of the 3 mission communities hasn't been rebuilt. You get to explore historical ruins that were abandoned after 19th century Apache raids. Sounds like an adventure!

Saguaro National Park

This iconic Arizona park is named after the Saguaro cactus. With over 150 miles of trails, this is the perfect place to visit for those excited to explore the desert wilderness.

Monument Valley

Monument Valley is an excellent place to have an adventure if you want to explore a vast sandy landscape. When the sun hits the rocks, the resulting shadows create picturesque scenery. You will also enjoy gazing at the towers — some of which are up to 1000 feet high!

White House Ruins

The White House Ruins is located at Canyon De Chelley and is truly one of the most amazing places in Arizona. I highly recommend taking a guided tour through the areas. You will have a memorable adventure and be able to take lots of stunning pictures.  Truly an Instagram worthy location!

Arizona is an underrated place to visit. This list barely scratches the surface of all the locations within this great state. Whether you want to adventure alone for a wellness retreat, bring along the family, or as a romantic getaway, Arizona provides many opportunities. Stay safe and enjoy your trip!
