Creating Your Dream Vacation to Arizona

Horseshoe Bend Tour is a Must

Northern Arizona is a place that is worthy to be on any traveler’s bucket list. There are so many natural wonders that are beautiful to see and Instagram friendly. If you have not been to Arizona, northern Arizona is a perfect place for a vacation while also taking some time to relax and get back to nature. Arizona is located in the southwest of the United States. It is most accessible by airplane and car. You can find public transportation in bigger cities such as Phoenix. If you plan on going to the north of Arizona to sites such as Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend Tour, you will need a car or rental car. This will allow you to travel from site to site without having to walk for miles. 

Another thing you will want to keep in mind is that the weather is on the warm side, which means that the summers can get unbearably hot. You may want to plan your vacation in the spring instead of the middle of the summer. Whenever you do decide to go, you will want to bring plenty of water and stay hydrated.


Here are several different ways you can create your perfect vacation to Arizona:


See Multiple Sites

That’s right, you do not have to stay at one site for your entire vacation. There are probably a lot of other sites that are in close proximity to where you are staying. If you decide to visit Antelope Canyon, you will definitely want to go see Horseshoe Bend Tour, as it is only a 25-minute drive. This is a good way to see 2 breathtaking sites without losing time driving back and forth from where you are staying. 

Find out what days you are going to be in Arizona. This will help you get a general understanding of what you can see without being stressed. That way you can group certain things together so you are able to see what you want to without having to miss out on things you really want to do and see. 


Get Tickets and Tours Before You Go

You want to get tickets and book tours before you go, not just because it is smart because it is necessary. There is no way you can walk up to some hiking spots and join a tour. These tour slots fill up months, sometimes years in advance depending on where you want to go.

This means it is time to pull out your electronic device of choice and get searching. Multiple websites will have different tours that you can choose from. Be smart and choose ours for your next adventure.


Talk it Out

This is really important if you are going with a group of people. You may want to meet together several times before going on your trip and planning everything out. See what everyone wants to do and create a plan that excites everyone in your group. This way you can compromise and talk out the details without miscommunication. We feel that the best groups we have to know what their experience will be like.


Get in Shape

No, you do not have to be in the best shape of your life to go on a trip with some hiking. You will want to make sure that you are in shape enough to withstand some stretches of steps and long walks. You can make your vacation a great workout if you want to make it more intense. In one day you can see both Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend Tour.

If you want to keep things simple because of elderly people or little kids in your group, take your time. You do not have to do two hikes or even one site in a day. Take several days to see one site and a couple of days to do another site. Keep in mind that you do not have to do every single hike at each location. Choose one that is a good fit for you.

The simplest way to be prepared for these hikes is to go on a walk several times a week. Make sure that the walking trail has some hills or goes upwards at some point. You can also try running if you want more intense cardio.


Have Fun

You’ve done all the work and preparation, now enjoy yourself. Traveling truly is an adventure so enjoy the ride. Nothing is going to run perfectly smoothly, but when it does soak it in. This will give you the relaxation and rest that you deserve. 

There is nothing worse than needing a vacation from your vacation. There is the mentality while traveling to go and see everything because you may only be there once. While this may be true, it is not worth your precious vacation time and sanity. You do not want to be in a rush and stressed out during your whole trip. 

Traveling is a good way to practice being present and determining what really matters. If you tend to get anxious or stressed out easily, find ways to make your vacation enjoyable. Find time to rest and unwind on your vacation. Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend have multiple yoga and stress relief experiences nearby that you can join in. 

It is most important to remember that planning a trip is a process and will take time. Breaking your vacation down into sections can be helpful so you do not get overwhelmed. You do not have to plan everything in a day. Give yourself time and see what is available. Also, consider what will be best for you and your traveling party. These tips will allow you to have a great vacation and not be stressed during your trip.
