Best Small Towns in Arizona

What are the tiniest towns in Arizona? 

There are several towns that one could probably classify as “tiny”, and for this set of examples, we’re assuming that this means a town with 500 or fewer residents. Amado, Arizona, is home to just 295 people, and Ash Fork is home to just 396. The almost-unheard-of town of Dragoon, in southeastern Arizona, is home to 209 people. Want more? Check out this list of ten tiny towns in Arizona you might have never heard of.  

Which charming small towns in Arizona should I add to my bucket list?  

Oh, goodness, where to begin! Arizona is full of adorable, charming little towns that you’ve got to see to believe. Sedona is definitely a bucket-list-worthy destination, with breathtaking red cliffs and some of the most incredible sunsets you’ve ever seen. The charm is off the charts! Wickenburg is another great small town with a lot of western charm, and it’s a gateway to Kingman, to the north, and Las Vegas, to the northwest. Payson is a beautiful small town surrounded by ponderosa pine forest (and there’s a really cool natural bridge nearby there, too). Prescott is famous for its Whiskey Row, a popular portion of downtown famous for…well… whiskey bars.  

What are some of the most interesting day trips in Arizona to take? 

The most obvious answer is probably the Grand Canyon – and that’s one of those places where you can spend a whole day or a whole week. However, there are plenty of other ideas you can use as well, like taking a haunted Jerome ghost tour in the fall. You can make an entire day out of a visit to Sedona, where the quaint local shops are in the center of an incredible set of canyons, mesas, buttes, and cliffs – most of which are brilliant red. You could take a tour of old mining towns, making it a goal to visit several in one day. You could even put together an ice cream road trip, wherein you visit all the best shops in the state. The possibilities are endless!
