For me, Arizona boasts that rare combination of beauty and brawn. It’s refined yet rugged, cultured yet coarse and expansive yet intimately rooted in the converging histories of the Southwest. It’s an American destination that’s quietly creeping to the top of clued-up traveller’s lists.
The inimitable natural landscape—from the peaks and plains in Tucson, to the deep red hues of Sedona, or the vibrant sunsets of Scottsdale’s Sonoran Desert—contrasts sharply against thriving urban hubs; cities filled with architectural genius and creative talent that are becoming epicenters of an American culinary revolution.
So whether you’re delighting in the innovative structures of Frank Lloyd Wright, sampling the fusion cuisines of Cordon Bleu chefs, or trekking through the untamed beauty of the Arizonan landscape, know this; there’s something here for everyone, but most are yet to realise that.
