Arizona State Travel Guide


Arizona is the 48th state and last of the contiguous states to be admitted to the Union, achieving statehood on February 14, 1912. The Grand Canyon is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and is largely contained in the Grand Canyon National Park—one of the first national parks in the United States. Arizona is home to approximately 24 National Park Units, 25 State Parks, 6 National Forests, 9 National Wildlife Refuges, 2 Wild & Scenic Rivers, 1,400 Places listed on the National Register of Historic Places, 46 National Historic Landmarks, 10 National Natural Landmarks, and 1 National Heritage Area.

‘There’s something wonderfully healing in Arizona air.’ ~Zane Grey, The Call of the Canyon, 1924
