The Southwestern United States of America


Explore the dramatic Southwestern United States of Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma. See our Southwestern USA Travel Guides here. Experience a diverse landscape that ranges from the wide open great plains to juniper studded forests, vast sweeping desert valleys to the snowcapped mountains that descend into deep craggy canyons. Hike along desert washes lined with iconic saguaros and ancient cactus. Climb up to the top of sky islands amid the soaring hawks and golden eagles. Be awe-inspired as Mother Nature paints the sky with her infamous southwestern sunrises and sunsets. Be thrilled with the electric drama of summer monsoon storm magic. Bask in the sweet bliss of spring as wildflowers blanket the valleys and fall colors drench the forests and waterways. Get your nature fix and see migratory sandhill cranes and shimmering hummingbirds, roaming pronghorn and scurrying armadillos. Visit the small desert towns and ranching communities, and explore the historic railroad cities and old pueblos. Travel the infamous Route 66 and follow the historic trails blazed by explorers, homesteaders and pioneers. Put on your cowboy boots and go dancing in an authentic roadhouse. Of course there’s margaritas and mariachi bands at happy hour.
