This new edition features new hotels and restaurants, maps, and even more beautiful color photos! If readers can only spend one day in Phoenix or Tucson before heading off to the Grand Canyon, we give them great choices. Or perhaps they'll choose to visit Phoenix for a week but want some great day trips nearby, or maybe it's a weekend in Navajo country to shop for Native American pottery and then a week touring around Sedona and Lake Powell. We've got it all planned out for them. Also includes the best of Tombstone, Lake Powell, the Painted Desert, the Petrified Forest, Bisbee, Gila Bend and more; every corner of Arizona is covered. Best of all, we don't weigh readers down with tons of useless information-we cut to the chase and give readers short descriptions of the best Arizona has to offer.
