This Arizona Attraction Was Just Named The Best Travel Spot In The U.S. …And Here’s Why

Have you heard? There’s a little spot right here in Arizona that was recently named the best place to vacation in the country by U.S. News. It beat out more exotic locales like Maui and culture destinations like New York City. That place is none other than our beloved Grand Canyon. It came in at the top of the publisher’s lists for “Best Adventure Vacation in the USA,” “Best Spring Vacations,” “Best Family Vacations,” and, of course, “Best Place to Visit in the USA.”

For anyone who’s visited the national park, this is nothing new. But for those who have yet to visit: what are you waiting for? Here’s a few of our favorite reasons the Grand Canyon will always be the best destination in our hearts.

Ah, such a gorgeous place! Want to visit another one of Arizona’s many canyons? We recommend reading about and checking out Canyon de Chelly!
