Arizona has plenty of natural wonders and scenic destinations. If you’re looking to find equally beautiful and historical places, take a look at this list of places to visit in Arizona for an amazing Southwest Experience.

Havasu Falls

This scenic area is just as beautiful as it is enchanting. The bodies of water at the base of Havasu Falls lend a bluish-green tint to the water.

The waterfall becomes split down the middle, in a fork-like way, so it looks as though there are two waterfalls instead of one when the river is in a heavy flow. Without intruding on the community that takes residence here, the Havasupai tribe (the “people of the blue-green water”) live a life of seclusion but offer visitors a ton of history and amusement. You can experience their modest farm life when visiting the inhabitants at Havasu Falls.

Horseshoe Bend

Given its name for a typically obvious reason, this unique canyon offers visitors a chance to fly above, hike, or take a boat ride around the horseshoe-shaped piece of nature.

The hike is quite short, totaling only about a mile and a half, which makes it ideal for non-experienced hikers. Horseshoe Canyon certainly should be a staple on your itinerary when visiting Arizona for low easy-going fun with plenty of adventure.

Grand Canyon Skywalk

Similar to Horseshoe Bend, this skywalk around the Grand Canyon is horseshoe-shaped.

It is located on the edge of the side of the canyon. It is widely popular and offers a view of the canyon without actually entering inside of the canyon. This is great for those who want to see the canyon but don’t necessarily want to go on a hike inside.

Antelope Canyon

This beautiful destination that is located in a Navajo Tribal Park is suitable for visitors of all ages.

This canyon consists of two different parts, both of which are beyond fascinating. Because of their distinctive features, each part earned the witty nicknames ‘The Crack’ and ‘The Corkscrew.’ You can view the Upper and Lower parts of Antelope Canyon exclusively by booking a tour. 

Lake Powell 

A man-made reservoir situated on the Colorado River, Lake Powell, was created in 1972 when the Glen Canyon was flooded after a devastating opening of the Glen Canyon Dam.

Take a hike… to these natural wonders of Arizona. With these sites, you’ll have a great experience, that is the southwest experience. You can take great adventures at any of these outdoor destinations.
