Many of Arizona's Native American reservations have websites and helpful information. Some require permits for visiting certain areas.

Information of particular interest to outdoorsy types can be found on the website for Arizona State Parks. The site for the National Park Service has links to many of Arizona's parks and there are other websites devoted specifically to the Grand Canyon. The Great Outdoor Recreation Page is another font of information for hikers, skiers, and the like.
There's a handful of excellent general-interest sites related to travel in Arizona. A very good bet is the Arizona Republic-sponsored azcentral.com, which provides news, reviews, and travel information on the entire state, with a particular emphasis on Phoenix. Alternative newsweeklies are another helpful resource, among them the Phoenix New Times. For the southern part of the state, look for Tucson Weekly. In Flagstaff and north-central Arizona, check out Flagstaff Live.
