======================================================================

One is taken by the start beauty of the empty desert and mountains on the road into Tuba City.

Tuba City itself is simply a town, but it's a town populated by and administered by the native peoples of northern Arizona. There are numerous opportunities to buy many exquisite and intricate Hopi and Navajo art and jewelry pieces, usually at a very reasonable price.

And, Tuba City is a very friendly town. Enjoy your visit, and do your part to help the local economy. Grab a bite to eat on the way out of town, too.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A chance to visit in true "native America". This is their city, not a gift shop.
  • Cons:It is not a very large city. Other than simple shopping, there's not much else to do.
  • In a nutshell:It's an interesting place to visit and shop for native American keepsakes.
  • Last visit to Tuba City: Jul 1998
