Between the Colorado River, which divides Arizona from California, and the Phoenix-Tucson megalopolis in the middle of the state, there is not much to attract the traveler off the freeway. However, the rather complete absence of interesting places in southwestern Arizona is more than made up for by the wealth of fascinating things to see in the state’s southeast corner. Here you’ll find such legendary sites as Tombstone—home of the O.K. Corral—and other finely presented reminders of the state’s Wild West heritage, along with some of Arizona’s most beautiful natural scenery.
