Why This One Little Town Is Arizona’s Best Kept Secret
It’s a shame that most people visiting Arizona tend to only frequent the touristy spots: Sedona, the Grand Canyon, Phoenix and its suburbs. There are so many hidden gems scattered around the state that are just off the radar for even long-time residents. It’s these little places that really showcase our state, whether it’s our impressive food or diverse cultures or the oddities you can find here. One place we’re going to look at today is an old silver mining town found along a lonely stretch of highway in the western part of Arizona.It makes for an entertaining stop during a weekend trip!
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/
