Arizona, also known as the Grand Canyon State, is located in the American Southwest. Admitted as the 48th State of the Union in 1912, Arizona is home to the Grand Canyon as well as a variety of terrain, climates and cultures.

Things to see and do are largely centred around various types of visits to the Grand Canyon. Tourist most commonly experience the landscapes of the canyon by coach or bus from Las Vegas in Nevada, but many choose to experience it via helicopter for a more upmarket and intimate experience.
