    Many people think of Arizona as being
    home to deserts and cacti, and that’s very true, but there’s so much more to
    see in this diverse state.

    Here are a few great places to
    consider as you decide where you want to point your RV



    Discovered in 1974,
    Karchner Caverns is a massive underground system of living limestone caves
    and it contains one the world’s longest stalactite formations. Guided tours
    of the cavern’s Throne Room and Big Room are available and there is a 23,000
    square foot Discovery Center to explore. While you’re in the area, take a
    side trip to Tombstone. Known as “The Town too Tough to Die” and as the site
    of the famous Gunfight at the OK Corral, Tombstone is the place where Western
    legends like Doc Holliday, Wyatt Earp, Johnny Ringo and Ike Clanton
    walked the streets over 130 years

    National Park

    The iconic giant saguaro is a
    protected species at this sprawling national park which is divided into two
    sections — one to the east of Tucson and the other to the west. You’ve
    probably seen a few saguaros when watching a western, but imagine seeing an
    entire forest of these magnificent desert dwellers that only thrive in a
    small portion of the U.S. The park offers hiking and biking trails and scenic
    drives, and with its backdrop of the Rincon and Tucson mountains, it’s the
    ideal place to catch a blazing Arizona

    The famous London Bridge, which once

    from, including boating, fishing, hiking, watersports and off roading. Or,

    Somewhere around 50,000 years ago, an
    asteroid traveling about 26,000 miles per hour collided with the Earth near
    what is now known as Winslow, Arizona. The site of the impact is now the best
    preserved meteorite impact site on Earth, measuring nearly
    a mile across and more than 550 feet deep. It is now an international tourist
    destination with outdoor observation trails, air conditioned indoor viewing,
    a wide screen movie theater and Interactive Discovery Center. The Apollo
    Astronaut Memorial Park near the Visitor’s Center honors the NASA astronauts
    who trained here during the 1960s for the Apollo missions and contains an
    Apollo Test Capsule with a viewing window so visitors can marvel at the
    astronauts’ cramped quarters.

    Located at a cool
    elevation of 5,200 feet, Prescott was once the territorial capital of Arizona
    and has a charming town square anchored by the courthouse. This plaza has
    been honored as one of the top 10 public spaces in the U.S., and is
    surrounded with shops and restaurants, including the world-famous Whiskey Row
    where Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday were known to frequent the saloons. The

    Mogollon Rim

    spectacular panoramic views and cool pine forests appeal to you, then you’ll
    want to visit one of Arizona’s most dramatic natural features, the Mogollon
    (pronounced “muggy-own”) Rim. The rim itself spans 200 miles, and the area is
    a popular spot for camping, fishing, boating and hiking. The famed Western
    writer Zane Grey was so inspired by the area’s natural beauty that he wrote
    several of his novels here in a cabin on nearby Tonto
