Southern Arizona Feature


Top Reasons to Go to Southern Arizona

Tour Kartchner Caverns: The underground world of a living "wet" cave system is a rare and wonderful sensory experience. You'll see a multicolor limestone kingdom and probably feel "cave kiss" droplets grace your head; just don't touch anything.

Hike in the Chiricahuas: Stunning "upside-down" rock formations, flourishing wildlife, and relatively easy trails make for great hiking in this unspoiled region. The 3.4-mile Echo Canyon Loop Trail is a winner.

Explore Bisbee: Board the Queen Mine Train and venture into the life of a copper miner at the turn of the last century. Afterward, check out the narrow, hilly town's Victorian houses and thriving shops.

Stargaze at Kitt Peak: Clear skies and dry air provide ideal conditions for stargazing; the evening observation program, with top-notch telescopes and enthusiastic guides, is an excellent introduction to astronomy.
