Perfect for road trips, Arizona is where Native American history comes to life. This one of the United States of America is home for a number of unique natural wonders, which have transformed through years into very popular touristic destinations. Among them are the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Superstition Mountains, Sunset Crater, Saguaro National Park, Lake Powell, Rainbow Bridge and many others. The Grand Canyon alone attracts about five million visitors per year, and it doesn’t take long to understand why: this is where nearly two billion years of Earth’s geological history exposed to view of the people, while the Colorado River was making its way through layer after layer of rock. The secret of Grand Canyon’s majestic beauty is the unique combination of geologic color and erosional forms which created the most mysterious and striking landscapes on the planet. But it’s not only Grand Canyon (which is, undoubtedly, a number one attraction of the area) what Arizona’s worth visiting for.
Home to a variety of vibrant Native American cultures, the state has a large piece of its land set aside and designated as Indian territory. Twenty-two officially recognized tribes and communities live today in peace and harmony, creating one-of-a-kind ethnic brew which every true adventurer would find extremely interesting to discover. The Indian reservation areas offer plenty of touristic activities, like hunting, fishing, camping and, of course, numerous hiking tours of the unique natural sights. Not less popular are tickets for colorful cultural performances by tribal groups, telling about their history. If Arizona is not yet on your must-visit list, you would probably give up having learnt that it has a spot where four of the American states come together at one place. This is the Four Corners Monument, where one can stand in Arizona, New Mexico Utah and Colorado at the same time, so why not experience four different states in one trip?
