Nevada's \"hot\" neighbor, Arizona shares a lot of similar things to Nevada like plant and animal life, sandy landscape, and dry heat. But that's about where it stops. Arizona offers a bit more variety in cities like Sedona, Tuscon, Scottsdale, and Phoenix. Having stayed here for 3 months, I feel Arizona has a quiet but culturally diverse and artistic feel to it, not to mention great hiking.
You will see a small town called Sacatan where the Huhukam Natives live, Phoenix, Sedona, Grand Canyon, Chapel of the Holy Cross, Biosphere, Boulder Creek Bridge, Goldfield Ghost Town, Echo Canyon Park, Mystery House, Wild Horse Pass Casino.
