Spectacular vistas are the norm in The Grand Canyon

The jaw dropping scenery is what springs to mind when you think about the Grand Canyon but there is plenty to do for the activity conscious. Everything from white water rafting, to helicopter and airplane rides. You can even get down to earth and enjoy the hiking trails or even take a mule ride.

Native American sites

With it’s proximity to the giant Navaho reservation together with many smaller reservations including Hopi, Zuni, Hualapai, Havasupai and Paiute, it is no surprise that there are plenty of Native American interest in the area.

There is a decent write up of the area’s Native American history here…

Arizona Road Trip

Situated at the northern tip of Arizona, northwest of Flagstaff, it is only around 3.5 hours drive from Scottsdale. If you fancy a road trip from your base in Scottsdale you can take in Sedona and the Grand Canyon together. 

Sedona is around 90 minutes drive north of Scottsdale and it is just another 2 hours drive onwards to the Grand Canyon. So three outstanding destinations showcasing the best that the state of Arizona has to offer with the minimum of driving.
