Arizona travel destinations embody all that is wild and majestic. There is no other place that can transport one back to the days of the old West and make reality the hardiness of the early settlers. The cactus, red rock, snakes and miles of dry scrub-brush-dotted desert are both hypnotic and repellent. It took courage to settle here and leathery, dogged-determination to stay.
Arizona is a mixture of ancient peoples and ultra modern hustle and bustle. One can walk down the streets of any metropolitan city and pass suited business men in front of a touring glass-fronted skyscraper. Then turn the corner and see an old adobe structure and Native Americans in their traditional dress.
Usually when one thinks of Arizona they picture tall cactus arms stretched skyward and snow-less winters, or the vast awesome expanses of the Grand Canyon. However, there is winter skiing in at the Snowbowl in Flagstaff with the 2008-2009 season being the best they've ever had
For those folks in touch with their mystical side, Sedona is their Mecca of choice. The bargain-hunter can find miles of deals at the Rock and Gem Show in Quartzsite every year. For those with allergies to mold, you will find the dryness of Arizona a welcome relief...although you might want to avoid the sprinkler-drenched cities.
