From Flagstaff’s pine forests to Sedona’s red mesas, Arizona offers a wide variety of dramatic landscapes. The Grand Canyon State boasts an impressive 34 state parks and 3 National Parks: Saguaro, Petrified Forest, and Grand Canyon.

Though some parts of the state have snowy winters, Arizona’s relatively moderate climate provides opportunities for outdoor activities year-round.
