Why do I like to travel? 

It’s simple… to explore the historic past, the vibrant present and the promising future of a place. However, some places leave you so mesmerised that you cannot think about the passage of time and want to just stay still and continue to be amazed by the natural beauty and aura of the mystique. One such US destination is Arizona… with so much to do, you will have a hard time picking what to experience. Here is a check-list of what I must do when I head there...

One of the Wonders of the World, the natural landscape of Grand Canyon is majestically breathtaking. The canyon is spread over 18 miles while the park spans over one million acres and is extremely accessible to explorers from the Grand Canyon Village located on the South Rim. The Best Western Premier Grand Canyon Squire Inn that’s just a few minutes’ drive from the South Rim entrance organises aerial and adventure tours for explorers to experience the natural beauty of the Canyon.

Around 900 years ago the earth opened up in Flagstaff, spewing lava and poisonous gases to reshape the surrounding landscape with a rim of yellow and red cinders. Today the ruggedly dramatic lava and cinder deposits co-exist with vegetation and wildlife, to emphasise how life continues at the Sunset Crater Volcano. The Little America Flagstaff Hotel organises guided biking and hiking tours to experience the youngest volcano that looks as fresh and rugged as on day one.

A natural cave formed by a massive fallen granite boulder, the Hiking Tom’s Thumb Trail provides hikers with a mysterious place to explore in the arid Sonoran Desert. The trail from the Gateway Access at the base of the McDowell Mountains leads on to Tom’s Thumb, an iconic formation that is visible from miles around, making it one of the most visited destinations. The Scottsdale Marriott at McDowell Mountains manages Hummer tours to explore the McDowell Mountain’s challenging terrain. 

Adventurous isn’t it?
