The city of limitless possibilities
Mesa. The largest suburb in the United States of America. (We just blew your mind right!?)
Probably not going to get you to visit just with that designation though, right? Well, read on to find out exactly why you should put Mesa on your list of gotta visit places on your next trip to Arizona.
Wind Cave Trail: At only 1.6 miles, this hike is accessible to toddlers as well as too old to have been a toddler in the last 80 years. Don’t miss the fantastic wild flowers scattered throughout the hike.
Salt River Tubing: Yup, nothing as attractive as water in the desert. Floating the Salt River has become a bit of a floating party with a variety of events scheduled each year that range from Mardi Gras Magic to Pirates on the Salt River.
Rockin’ R Ranch: Bring the old west back to life in this 1880s replica of an old west town. Everything you need to travel back in time to the days of the gun toating sheriffs and real live outlaws. With live music, an opportunity to pan for gold, and even a reenactment of an old west gunfight. Oh yeah, did I mention an all-you-can eat BBQ?

The shortest distance between two points is a straight line. Well, Mother Nature was not interested in the shortest distance. Scattered throughout the American Southwest are a number of spots where these adolescent, free-thinking rivers chose a different path and literally did a 180.
One of the most iconic episodes of this occurred on the Colorado River just 5 miles downstream of the Glen Canyon Dam. Now presenting, Horseshoe Bend Arizona. Just a quick drive to the outskirts of Page, AZ resides one of those Instagram-wothy memories that made you jealous of that ‘one friend.’ With such easy access to this landscape photography icon, take a few moments to bask in an amazing sunset, snap a few quick photos, and be that friend this time around. There are plenty of things to do around Page, but a sunset at Horseshoe Bend should definitely make your list.
What’s in the middle of the desert? Cactus, cowboys, and cut ya to the core scalding heat? That’s what yer thinkin’, but you would be sorely mistaken, pardner.

Phoenix Arizona boasts over 1.6 million people and those residents are anything but bored. Whether you are into sports, animals, the arts, the outdoors, or the luxuries found in a world-class spa, Phoenix Arizona has something for you.
Oh yeah, and the weather. Not many places can boast almost 300 days of sunshine every year. That’s right, it’s gonna be a bright, bright, bright, bright sunshiny day!
