Here Are The Best Times And Places To View Fall Foliage In Arizona
It may be September but most of the state still feels like summer. While we wait for those triple-digits days to dwindle into something significantly cooler, we can start making plans for fall weather activities. This includes checking out the changing leaves throughout the state and it looks like those activities may commence much sooner than you think!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
