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.
