Best Road Trips in Arizona

See the Grand Canyon State Along These Famed Tours

Hit the road and see famous national parks this summer, have a snowy adventure in northern Arizona this winter, and just plain enjoy yourself any time in between.

Why not start with the Apache Trail? Eastern Arizona is the unsung hero of an incredibly diverse state. From the Phoenix metro area to the wilderness of the New Mexico border, eastern Arizona features the Superstition Mountains, Tonto National Forest, Mogollon Rim, the Apache Stigreaves National Forest, and the White Mountains.

You won’t find much cactus in northern Arizona. The diverse landscape of the northern Grand Canyon State is home to just that, the Grand Canyon – plus other famous national parks, historic sites, and cities like Kingman, Sedona, and Winslow. The best part? Most everything is found on Historic Route 66.

Southern Arizona features the beauty of the Sonoran Desert and the Santa Cruz River Valley, and plenty of natural and historical attractions. Don't miss Old Tucson, Casa Grande Ruins, Kartchner Caverns State Park, Tumacacori National Historic Park, Titan Missile Museum – plus famed Arizona towns like Tombstone, Bisbee, and more.
