Though the last contiguous state to join the Union, Arizona should be at the top of your vacation list. Some of the nation’s most popular attractions—Grand Canyon, Route 66—are located within Arizona borders, and hotel guests will find that this desert climate offers attractions as diverse as its landscape.
Mentioning “Arizona” often conjures visions of dramatic landscapes at the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley, a famous park and filming location in Arizona. Our hotel’s guests are encouraged to explore the great feats of mankind, such as the Hoover Dam and the Mother Road (Route 66), but shouldn’t miss a tour of one of the area’s many ghost towns and old mining communities. Consider Jerome, the “Wickedest Town in the West,” which has become a leading arts community.
Arizona’s complex beauty extends beyond its Red Rock Country into the cities, where it’s hard to take your eyes off the intricate skyline of skyscrapers and mountain peaks as you dine on Navajo-Churro sheep, mesquite pod flower or cactus. Visit the Phoenix Art Museum or a Native American art museum for another look at local culture. And if you choose a hotel in Tucson, Arizona, venture beyond city limits for tastings at a local vineyard.
