This One Little Arizona Town Is A Nature Lover’s Dream
The Grand Canyon State is full of natural wonders, but few cities have a higher concentration than Payson. This mid-sized town of just over 15,000 is a hidden oasis in Northern Arizona, with everything from a 300-million-year-old fossil site to the magical Mogollon Rim.
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/
