With bargain flights to Arizona, you can see the state and still have cash to shop for souvenirs.
When your Arizona flights land, they will generally take you to the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, although Tucson International is the second busiest airport in the state. Sky Harbor provides free Wi-Fi and special parking lots where your ride can stay until you get your baggage and call them to collect you. Tucson International also has free Wi-Fi and the Performing Arts Program supports the arts in all its forms with exhibitions and shows within its terminals and concourses. Both airports provide the usual shopping and dining opportunities.
While Arizona is known as a desert, be aware that it contains multiple climate regions. While your Arizona flights will land in the desert area, if you are traveling to an area in upper altitudes, for example, Flagstaff, weather conditions may be much cooler and damper. Be prepared for the climate in the area you are visiting. No matter what time of year you visit you will find the perfect weather somewhere in the state. And remember to bring a jacket no matter where you go– temperatures in the desert at night can drop dramatically.
Most western states are spacious and have a distinctly rural quality to them. Arizona is no different. Unless you are visiting in one of the larger cities such as Tucson, Phoenix, Flagstaff or Sedona, for example, public transportation is rare. Greyhound buses can get you between towns or cities, but they don't generally go to attractions such as national parks. Your best bet for getting around is to rent a car and drive yourself. This way you can get to those out of the way parks and natural wonders that make the state renowned. In particular, you want to know Interstate 17 to get to most attractions, and the Apache Trail (Highway 88), which is a scenic drive that will show you the natural beauty of the desert.
Arizona is a state known for its natural beauty. Whether you plan to visit the Grand Canyon, the Painted Desert, sail down the ski slopes in Flagstaff, or check out the night life in Tucson or Phoenix, there will be history and nature wherever you turn.
