    The Tombstone Brewery Is Worth Visiting 

    From Redditor u/drunkbackpacker:

    Check out Jerome. And if you like it go to Bisbee. It’s like Jerome x20. They’re old mining towns. Bisbee is almost to the southern border but it’s worth it. Lots of food, alcohol, and shops. Everything is within walking distance. Tombstone is 20 minutes away from Bisbee and it’s touristy but still worth spending a couple of hours in. They do shows and cowboy stuff. Shops, food, and alcohol here too. Oh, and the tombstone brewery is there. Which is arguably the best and most consistent brewery in Arizona.

    The Road To Sedona Is Nerve-Racking

    From Redditor u/davidzilla12345:

    Sedona is breath taking. The road out will be a little nerve wracking, as it winds around and can be steep. But so beautiful!

    Antelope Canyon Is A Must-See

    From Redditor u/Ryan_Extra:

    Antelope Canyon in Page is a must-see too. I would also recommend kayaking the upper canyons within Lake Powell.

    Definitely Visit Monument Valley

    From Redditor u/Old-Dog2:

    I strongly suggest that you consider a visit to the Monument Valley area. Also, about two hours southeast is Canyon de Chelly which I also recommend. Having been all over Arizona I would pass on Tucson and focus on northern Arizona and the adjacent Utah border areas.

    Also, unless you are going to do a tour at the Grand Canyon, and descend into a portion of the canyon, don't spend more than a half day there.

    You can go to Page from Flagstaff and then head back down the same road until you can grab the road that cuts Northeast to Monument Valley.

    Tucson and Phoenix are just big warm cities.

    Take The Most Scenic Route

    From Redditor u/comeonmeow2:

    On your way from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon, you should take Highway 89A through Sedona up to Flagstaff and then take Highway 180 from Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon. That would be the most scenic route.

    Flagstaff Has Great Nightlife

    From Redditor u/drunkbackpacker:

    Flagstaff is a college town up north. Downtown has a lot of cool shops and a lot of bars. I like to get a hotel and bar hop and walk around all day to escape the Phoenix heat.
