Arizona Tourism ~ Know Before You Go

Find Sedona Real Estate

Arizona Tourism & the Superbowl XLIX – Glendale Arizona

Arizona Tourism literally shines this time of year. If you are  coming to Arizona for the sun and fun, you are going to want to know what to do, where to go, when the events are scheduled and other places to see while you are here in our beautiful state.  If you are like me,  you don’t have a lot of time to spend researching all the great spots to go to.  Hopefully, I can point you in the right direction right here. The websites below will provide you with enough content to plan your vacation or your visit.

This is Peak Season for Phoenix & Arizona

Because of our beautiful weather this time of year, visitors from colder climates love to come here to spend some time and thaw out from their chilly, or down right cold weather! Outdoor sports are at their peak including golf, hiking and biking.  The Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction is going on right now in Scottsdale.

Below you will find the websites to visit for information about Phoenix, things to do, where to eat and other events and special offers.  If you haven’t booked a hotel or place to stay, you may be out-of-luck.  Be prepared to spend premium $$ for a room or rental to see the  visit the area.  You may find accommodations in areas that are further away from the action but require traveling some distance to get to the heart of the action.  Try to book some time to see us in Sedona (about 1 hour and 45 minutes north of Scottsdale).  It is one of the most beautiful areas of the United States and you won’t be disappointed with your trip. Check out my website for things to do under Search Communities. Select Sedona and cursor down to “Other Informative Sedona Websites“.

I also have some great pictures on my Pinterest Account – check out the “WOW – Arizona” tab.

Websites for Phoenix and Superbowl

You can learn about everything you want to know about Phoenix, Glendale and the events from these two websites.

Visit Phoenix (

Don’t forget that the Grand Canyon is also a must see if you have time.

Sedona Luxury Real Estate

Our Arizona Tourism has so many wonderful areas in Northern Arizona to see.  You can take the Grand Canyon Railway out of Williams to go to the Grand Canyon.  It a a wonderful experience and is a more relaxing way to see one of the Wonders of the World.  Plan a long day if you are traveling out of the Phoenix area. i recommend staying overnight in Sedona or Williams for the train trip. If you stay in Sedona, Williams is about an hour north.

Northern Arizona also is home to Jerome, a copper mining and ghost town with quaint shops and art galleries. the website offers a quick look at other local communities as well.  There is another train trip (Verde Canyon RR) you can take that goes through the Verde Canyon in Clarkdale about a 40 minute ride from Sedona.  Also, for those wine lovers, we have some nice wineries you can visit or tour in the Verde Valley.  There are tasting rooms in many areas of the Verde Valley including Sedona, and Old Town Cottonwood.  ~ Verde Valley Wine Trail ~

The famous corner in Winslow made possible by the Eagles hit song.

Further to the northeast from Flagstaff off Interstate 40 which follows Historic Route 66, you will find Meteor Crater.  It is a sight to behold and just a little further east.  There is Winslow Arizona, home of that famous corner made popular in the song by the Eagles.  and the Historic La Posada Hotel.  This is a must see location if you are out that way.

You might want to head south of Phoenix and visit the Tucson area where you can find old mining towns like Bisbee and Tombstone. Check out other Arizona Ghost Towns here.

Arizona has a rich history from the “Wild West” days.  You should take some of it in while you are here enjoying are warm winter weather.  If you enjoy hiking and caves, start your search here.

I hope that the friendly attitude of our Arizona Tourism will help you enjoy your time in our wonderful state.  As always, if you have any questions, feel free to call me.  Contact Sheri Sperry or visit my website if you are searching for real estate in the Sedona Verde Valley area. – Cursor down the page for instant property search buttons and other websites to learn about the Sedona Verde Valley.
