Check Out The Food

First on this list, I highly recommend that you check out the food and cafe scene in the different parts of Arizona. There are some absolutely delicious places to eat, and a lot of them you should be able to fit into a healthy diet.

For example, there is a delicious Mediterranean restaurant Gilbert, AZ residents go mad for that you absolutely have to try.

There are lots of different foods on offer depending on where in Arizona you end up! Phoenix is definitely an area that has plenty of different food and quirky cafes to visit!


Visit The Grand Canyon (obviously!)

Of course if you are in Arizona you should visit the Grand Canyon if you want to do the typical touristy stuff. This is certainly something that you should experience in your lifetime, as it’s one of the attractions in the world that is most talked about. The Grand Canyon National Park has so many beautiful views to offer you, and it is undisputedly one of the best national parks in the entire US.

There are lots of hiking trails here for those of you who love a challenge, and whitewater rafting for those of you who are looking for a bit of thrill.

Be sure to be mindful of the safety precautions while hiking in the canyon and respect the nature and wildlife here. When my friend and I visited the park we did a shorter hike and still came across lots of bugs, spiders and the occasional snake so you definitely need to bring plenty of water and good hiking gear.


Travel Around The Smaller Towns

Last but not least, I highly recommend that you travel around and see some of the smaller towns in Arizona. There are so many different types of people in these places, and it’s such an experience to be able to have in your life. There are also a LOT of cool ghost towns to check out. If you have a rental car I highly recommend making some of these fun stops.

For example, Camp Verde is a scenic little town that has something to offer for someone. Every type of traveler will be taken care of here, so you will be well taken care of no matter what it is that you are hoping to find.

Another place that you should visit is Jerome which is a sleepy little cliffside community. It’s a wonderful place for a day trip, and is close to a lot of the main attractions that Arizona has to offer!

If you head over to Arizona for your next adventure, or if you find yourself passing through at any point then you should make time to do at least one of these things.

Arizona has so much to offer by way of breathtaking views and culture for you to experience, so it’s certainly worth taking the time to explore while you are there. Have fun!
