Local Area Overview
Grand Canyon National Park - It’s not often that one has an opportunity to see a major world wonder. Passing this up would be like going to Rome for a cup of coffee and leaving—so make the right call and enjoy one of the most breathtaking natural wonders in the universe.
Lowell Observatory - If you’re not a lover of astronomy, the Lowell Observatory’s existence may be news to you—but for those who dig constellations and planets and such, it has opened visual doors to the world of outer space through it’s many public telescopes. The main facility on Mars Hill features a telescope built in 1896 as well as the Pluto Discovery Telescope, used by Clyde Tombaugh in 1930 to discover the space body formerly known as a planet, Pluto. Great job, Clyde!
Arizona Snowbowl - Perhaps you didn’t know that skiing and Arizona had a relationship. Snowbowl is out to prove that the two have a rather serious one—and on top of that, one that lasts year round, as the Snowbowl also features a slew of summer mountain activities.
