13 Places I'd like to visit or have visited in Arizona
1.) Grand Canyon National Park- A must see! It took my breath away! The views are incredible.
2.) Sedona- I wish I spent more time there. The rock formations are a gorgeous red color.
3.)Out of Africa WildPark- I'd like to take the kids there this Summer.
4.)Lake Havasu-When I was in HighSchool, we spent 3 days at the Lake. Getting up before sunrise to waterski. The Lake was so calm and looked almost like glass! We'd watch the sunrise and had a blast skiing all day!
5.)Painted Desert/Petrified Forest-I've heard the Painted Desert is a gorgeous display of colors,and the Petrified Forest also has 225 millon year old fossils.
6.)Prescott and Jerome ,AZ- On your way to Sedona, stop in and visit these towns. If you like antiques you'd be sure to find some!
7.)Tombstone-Famous for the Gunfight at The OK Corral-Lots of History about the SouthWest!
8.)Kokopelli Winery and Bistro- I'll have to check this out this Summer.
9.)Verde Canyon Railroad- My grandparents to this tour, and came back with some absolutely gorgeous pictures!
10.) Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden- Another place to visit this Summer, maybe I can find some inspiring ideas to help me with starting a desert garden of my own.
11.)Snowbowl in Flagstaff- This is one of Arizona's best ski spots.
12.)Montezuma Castle National Park- Famous Sinagua Indian cliff dwellings.
13.) Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument- Site of a Volcanic eruption in 1065 AD.

I've been to Arizona but I was too young to appreciate it. I'm hopping to visit it again someday. I really would love to see the Grand Canyon.

Great list. I have been to a few of those places. My favorite was the Grand Canyon. My husband and I took a trip there last summer and had the BEST time. It was our first real road trip together.
