Ignoring the harsh weather (I arrived at the wrong time), Arizona offers plenty of places to explore and is also neighboring California, which I plan to visit during my time in America.
Old town Scottsdale: Where Vikings Meet Cowboys
Most of the time I’m here where viking and cowboy style is mixed.
Old Town Scottsdale is a charming district that blends the old and new. Here, you can find historic buildings dating back to the 1800s, as well as modern shops, restaurants, and bars.
The streets here are spotless, the people are incredibly friendly, and homeless people are a rare sight. Thus, it’s safe and tranquil. Even the delivery guy can leave Amazon-ordered packages at the doorstep all day without fear of theft.
Phoenix: The Heart of Arizona
The capital, the Scottsdale’s bustling neighbor, is the beating heart of Arizona.
It is the perfect place for entertainment and activity. All roads lead to Phoenix
Unforgettable hiking experiences at Camelback Mountain:
Flagstaff: A hidden gem in the suburbs.
I stumbled upon Flagstaff on my way to Sedona, and what a delightful surprise it was!
This mountain town has a European vibe, oozing romance. Also, it’s one of the snowiest cities in the U.S. Who would have thought?
Sedona: A hiker’s paradise.
Sedona, a well-known destination in Arizona, is the perfect spot for hiking and camping enthusiasts.
The town is surrounded by red rock canyons and mountains, providing stunning views and challenging hiking trails. The breathtaking landscapes are truly a sight to behold.
Grand Canyon: A Natural Wonder of the World
Of course, I couldn’t leave Arizona without visiting the Grand Canyon, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States.
It’s a vast canyon carved by the Colorado River. The moment I laid eyes on it, I felt like I’d been transported to another world. It’s a magical experience that words can’t do justice.
So, that’s all of my adventures in Arizona. From the unique charm of Old Town Scottsdale to the hidden gem - Flagstaff, the hiking haven of Sedona, and the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon, Arizona has it all. If you’re planning your own American adventure, be sure to include this state on your list 🌵🇺🇸.
