Arizona Desert

Arizona has emerged over recent years as one of most popular western states for business conferences, relocating and travel. Once known for being a barren hot desert where the elderly retired, it has now evolved into one of the hottest (figuratively) states in the country. Not only has Phoenix and surrounding cities become hotbeds for major national conferences, the state has become a main attraction for professionals and families alike to relocate lock, stock and barrel.

Centered in the heart of southwestern culture, Arizona borders California, Nevada and New Mexico, all of which are only an hour away by plane for any other attraction that might tickle your fancy. However, Arizona in itself provides enough scenic beauty with the Grand Canyon and other nature made phenomenon to keep you busy for a lifetime.

If the Valley of the Sun is your destination, stop by the official Phoenix tourism site, where you can discover all of the city's attractions, lodging and dining options.

Fun in the sun accentuates the excitement and spirit visitors find in Tempe.  Tempe's Town Lake, quality entertainment, shopping, cultural facilities, and prime location have helped make it one of the best places to visit in Arizona.  The ideal climate and spectacular sunsets can be enjoyed throughout the years. Only ten minutes from Sky Harbor International Airport, its proximity makes it easy for day or weekend trips to other popular attractions such as the Grand Canyon, Sedona or the Painted Desert.

Tucson is "real," "natural" Arizona. Nestled in the valley of five magnificent mountain ranges. Tucson is an international travel destination where the sun shines 350 days a year. A diverse blend of culture, endless natural beauty and a relaxed lifestyle combine to create a city that captures the essence of the southwest.

Historical Note: In the first century, a tribe of Indians farmed the region near Tucson, taking advantage of the natural irrigation of the rivers that cut through the land. Then, inexplicably, they disappeared, giving them the name by which they're known  today: "Hohokam" or "The Vanished Ones."
