Arizona is a beautiful state with plenty of things to do and see. Of course, some of those things are much more popular than others, like the Grand Canyon or the entire (beautiful) town of Sedona.

What are some totally weird places in Arizona?
Holbrook, Arizona, is one of those little towns nobody really gives a lot of thought to, though maybe they should. For example, check out Stewart’s Petrified Wood, which is a delight all on its own (but it’s made even better by the strange dinosaur creations. If you like those dinosaurs, you’ll also want to check out the awesome Rainbow Rock Shop, whose dino creations were hand-made out of cement and other materials by the shop’s owner himself.

If you enjoy places like Holbrook in all its weirdness, you’ll probably also love towns like Jerome and Oatman, both of which are incredibly unique and sure to fascinate everyone who visits.
