Arizona Daytime Expeditions
Although Arizona covers 113,998 square miles (and is roughly the size of Italy), there are a multitude of day trip options. From Phoenix, you can easily visit the red rocks in Sedona, hike the Superstition Mountains,
take in the vastness of The Grand Canyon or enjoy Whiskey Row in Prescott. Drive the Apache Trail – visit a ghost town, tour a mine and take a nature cruise on the Dolly Steamboat. Stop in Tortilla Flat for lunch
and prickly pear ice cream.
Although Arizona is not considered wine country, it is home to a number of local vineyards. Have a glass of Zinfandel and relax on the patio at Alcantara Vineyards in Camp Verde. Stop in at Pillsbury Wine in
Cottonwood for a tasty wine and chocolate pairing. Visit Caduceus Cellars and Merkin Vineyards in Cornville, owned by Tool front man Maynard James Keenan.
See over 3200 desert plants and 250 species of birds on a 1.5 mile trail at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum. Take the Verde Canyon Railroad to see beautiful landscapes in Central Arizona. Discover pine country in Payson and see the Shoofly Indian Ruins or Rim Country Museum.
