12 Amazing Natural Wonders Hiding In Plain Sight In Arizona – No Hiking Required
It’s no secret that you can find natural beauty all around Arizona. Bright blue skies combined with wide open spaces and impressive land formations makes for one incredible landscape. However, many of these sites require some degree of hiking, climbing, or other activity, which can mean that anyone with a mobility impairment—such as arthritis, a muscular disorder, or even recovering from surgery—will have a difficult time enjoying these places.
Don’t worry, though! We have a list of places that offer gorgeous sightseeing without the need for major physical activity. These places showcase some of our state’s most beautiful landscapes that you can drive up to or access by wheelchair.
Please note, Canyon de Chelly and Monument Valley are temporarily closed.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
