Arizona, the last contiguous state of the US to be admitted to the union, holds quite the diverse landscape — its southern half exhibits an arid, desert climate with red-hot summers and mild winters, while its northern half is lined with plateaus and mountain ranges dotted with forests of pine, spruce, and fir.

The sixth-largest state in America has no shortage of natural beauty that visitors can access — Grand Canyon National Park, the Colorado River, Humphreys Peak, Saguaro National Park, Petrified Forest National Park, the Wave, Antelope Canyon, and much more (way more) can be found within the borders of Arizona. Below are 20 of the best views in the state.
