Family Fun Activities in Arizona
You may be surprised to learn that the state of Arizona is the sixth largest state in the United States. Inside this vast area of land there are natural beauties, man-made wonders and enough fun-filled activities for the entire family. Whether you’re up north exploring the Grand Canyon, checking out the arts, entertainment and cuisine in the sprawling metropolis of Phoenix, or admiring the culture of the state’s numerous Native American tribes including the Navajo in southern Arizona, there are endless possibilities for the whole family in Arizona.
When many people think of Arizona the first thing that comes to mind is the Grand Canyon, and for good reason. Grand Canyon National Park is the 15th oldest national park in the United States, and covers over 1.2 million acres of land. It houses the world-famous Colorado River, which is considered to be one of the Wonders of the World. There are plenty of family friendly activities to participate in at the Grand Canyon. From less-strenuous tours to high intensity backpacking trails, you can achieve all the adventure that your family seeks.
While the Grand Canyon is certainly Arizona’s most impressive physical feature, the small city of Tombstone is interesting for completely different reasons. The small town of Tombstone sits in the southeastern part of the state, but is one of the last remaining towns from the Old West still standing. Home of the famous gunfight at the O.K. Corral, Tombstone is a glimpse into a world long gone, and gives tourists of all ages a sense of wonder and excitement. Whether you want to simply walk down the old, wooden boardwalks in the historic downtown district, or visit the Cochise County Courthouse, which is now a museum, Tombstone is an educational yet fun destination for the whole family.
Finally, for those looking to get a taste of the big city, you don’t need to look any further than the city of Phoenix. One of the biggest cities in the country, the state capital of Phoenix is a cultural anomaly that features fine art, delicious food and endless entertainment. Jester’z Improv is the best place for family comedy. Since 2001, The Jester’z have been entertaining audience of all sizes.
