From historic Prescott in the southwest to mystical Sedona in the northeast, and with the Grand Canyon—one of the world’s most distinguished landmarks—at its heart, Northern Arizona offers top natural, outdoors, and cultural attractions, and is home to a number of vacation rentals that suit every style and budget.
Featuring Grand Canyon National Park, Petrified Forest National Park, Prescott National Forest, Sunset Crater Volcanic National Monument, and the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, Northern Arizona provides opportunities to connect with the most majestic (and most photographed!) places on earth. At these preserves, popular activities include hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, river rafting, and mule riding. Lake Powell, on the Arizona Utah border, and Lake Mead, on the Arizona Nevada border, are havens for boaters and water sport enthusiasts. In the winter, Elk Ridge Ski and Outdoor Recreation and the family-friendly Arizona Snowbowl support downhill skiing, snowboarding, and tubing.
Northern Arizona’s top destinations include the charming mountain towns of Flagstaff, Pinetop-Lakeside, and Show Low, as well as the historic frontier town of Prescott, arty Jerome, and spiritual Sedona. The Native American reservations of the Navajo Nation are also spread across Northern Arizona, and many welcome visitors to experience their history, heritage, and culture.
Northern Arizona offers an array of natural, outdoors, and cultural attractions, as well as a variety of facilities and rental accommodation options, and is easily accessible from Phoenix and its International Airport.+ More
