Arizona is known for its world class resorts, championship golf, and beautifully expansive landscapes. But what ties all of this together and makes it possible are the small towns and metro areas. Arizona cities are wonderfully varied offering a getaway for all types of tourists year round. Here is a breakdown of Arizona’s top vacation destinations and what makes them unique.
Phoenix and its surrounding communities make up the heart of Arizona, both physically and figuratively.

Tempe creates a refreshing take on the ‘college town’ feeling with exciting events, a wonderful mix of culture, and an overflowing nightlife.
Mesa provides family friendly fun in parks, golf courses, museums, and outdoor activities. The exchange of culture and our own Southwestern charm is placed front and center here.
Phoenix is Arizona’s capital city filled with skyscrapers, entertainment, sporting events, and a selection of trails and hikes. Catch a game at one of our many stadiums.
Arizona is well known for its natural beauty but nothing beats the stunning coral red spires of Sedona’s mountainous backdrop. Voted “The Most Beautiful Place on Earth” by USA Weekend, this 1.8 million acre national forest provides easy access to all sorts of outdoor recreational activities without separating you from the comfort of luxury spas and fine dining. Visitors love walking through the authentic Arizona art plazas and exploring renowned hiking trails. Perhaps the greatest attraction, however, is the awe inspiring night sky.
Tucson is a genuine southwestern experience mixed perfectly with some of the more indulgent luxuries that come with the “big city” title. Go from a night at a guest ranch to a 5 star resort hotel. Tee off at the best championship golf courses in the nation, then go on a horseback ride to get in touch with your southwestern roots again. Tucson even works its way onto the radar of many celebrities for its incredible food and local hangouts.
Extreme temperatures and dry weather give Arizona cities a bad rap among cautious tourists, but Flagstaff is an accessible option for even the snowiest of snowbirds. Filled to the brim with culture, science, and recreational activities, Flagstaff has a ton of fun for everyone! While Phoenix is cooking in the heat and breaking 90 degrees, Flagstaff’s slopes are blanketed in snow through Fall, Winter, and Spring.
