15 Underrated Canyons In Arizona That Will Take Your Breath Away
When we say the word “canyon” most people will immediately think of one of the most famous examples in the world that just happens to sit in our backyard: the Grand Canyon. But did you know that Arizona is home to a huge number of canyons that don’t receive as much publicity as our World Wonder? Seriously, there’s a lot and many of them are either unheard of or rarely visited. Today, we’re going to take a look at 15 of those canyons so get ready to add some more stunning places to your never-ending “to visit” list.
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/
