Welcome to Central Arizona!
Central Arizona encompasses the area north of Phoenix and south of the Grand Canyon, extending east to Arizona's High Country. This part of Arizona is distinctive for its abundance of forest land, allowing for a wealth of recreational activities. Prescott is one of Central Arizona's larger cities and is known for its proximity to hiking and camping in the Prescott National Forest. Prescott also boasts the World's Oldest Rodeo, an annual festival that offers live entertainment, food concessions and a host of rodeo events. Sedona is another Central Arizona city and is home to a significant artistic community and the annual Sedona Jazz on the Rocks Festival. The Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village, housing a collection of local arts and crafts, is a popular draw for visitors to Sedona. The city's history can be explored at the Sedona Heritage Museum, which features a chronicle of the area's past through elaborate exhibits and informative displays.
