16. Arizona – 2010

IMG_20101009_120316While Arizona can be hot, going in October can be very pleasant.  The history surrounding this State is quite spectacular.  While the state is mostly dessert it still has tons of beauty.

Scottsdale:

One of my favorite places is to go to Scottsdale.  It is a really beautiful suburb of Phoenix.  You could travel to Flagstaff or Sedona too.  There is alos the Grand Canyon to see but I wasn’t too impressed.   Try the Scottsdale Silverado Golf Club for a spectacular course.
