What places in Arizona should I see before I die?
There are many things to do in Arizona in every corner of the state, but some are definitely worthy of being on your bucket list. Don't miss out on must-see attractions like the iconic Mitten Buttes in Monument Valley. We couldn't leave out a visit to the Grand Canyon, of course, or an underground exploration of the Kartchner Caverns. It's also a must to visit some of the many local Mexican restaurants in Arizona - if you know any locals, they'll be sure to have a favorite and direct you as to where to go. Exploring lesser-known parks like the Chiricahua National Monument or the Lost Dutchman State Park are also worthwhile experiences to have.
Which hidden gems in Arizona should I visit?
With so many popular Arizona attractions, some other places can get a bit overshadowed. These hidden gems aren't quite as well known, but they are equally as deserving of attention. For example, everyone knows about the Grand Canyon, but how many people also know about the Grand Canyon Caverns? This cave system near the famous attraction is fun to explore and you can even spend the night in it. Speaking canyons, have you heard about Sycamore Canyon? It's one of the largest in Arizona, yet not often visited. It's part of the Verde Valley and it's stunning, making it a perfect place for hiking and appreciating the views.
