You Tell Us: What's Your 'Arizona Adventure'?
September 16, 2015 at 12:05 am
An item published recently in The Arizona Republic caught our eye. It lists five of "Arizona's coolest adventures": rafting the Colorado River (pictured), hiking Aravaipa Canyon, rounding up cattle, taking a jeep tour in Sedona and jumping out of a plane.
The full article is worth a read, although we're not so sure about that last item. You can jump out of a plane anywhere, after all.
But there's plenty more adventure to be had in Arizona than just these five experiences. If you had to recommend one Arizona adventure to a visitor to the Grand Canyon State, what would it be, and why? Let us know in the comments below this post. To get you started, here are a few suggestions from the Arizona Highways staff:
- A trip along the state's stretch of Historic Route 66. Stunning scenery, quirky small towns and a lot of history. (Noah Austin, associate editor)
- Taking a trip to the White Mountains — pie at Bear Wallow Café, a stay at Hannagan Meadow Lodge and hiking along the West Baldy Trail or into the Blue Range Primitive Area. (Kelly Vaughn, managing editor)
- Kartchner Caverns is one of my all-time favorites. It's not an adrenaline rush, but it's really interesting and unique. (Keith Whitney, art director)
We look forward to hearing your suggestions!
