Even though Arizona was the 48th state and has only been a state since 1912, Arizona has a long history. There is evidence that the area that is now Arizona was inhabited over 13,000 years ago by the Clovis People. Many other people were attracted to this beautiful land, like the Hohokam, Sinagua, Anasazi and other indigenous peoples. Many European cultures explored the area and left their mark on the land and the poeple. Arizona is also home to the Grand Canyon and numerous other sites of natural beauty. Arizona has mountains, lakes rivers, deserts, cacti, and several unique species of plants and animals.

Arizona has full sized modern cities like Phoenix and Tucson and small towns that have resisted the pull of modern times. There is always something interesting to see in Arizona.

To try and make this increasingly large page more user friendly I will start making a general Thing To Do Tip on a location like a National Monument, Sate Park or other place and then refer you to other pages for details. I may add an extra tip to point out something special. I will probably list all hotels, restaurants and nightlife tips as is. I will try to refine my Things to Do Tips. The Travelogues will summarize the attractions for a part of Arizona. Feedback and suggestions are welcome.
