PHOENIX — To celebrate Arizona’s Centennial, coming up next year, AAA Arizona asked Arizonans to send in their top 100 things to see and do across the state.
“We’ve broken up the list into four separate installments that we’ll publish in our `High Roads’ magazine and we’re on our second installment which is called Urban Arizona,” said AAA’s Stephanie Dembowski.
She said the list is impressive.
“There’s so much to do here and this list really highlights a great variety of all of them — from arts and culture to outdoor recreation to some of the cooler buildings that we have, like to Orpheum Theater and things like Taliesin West from Frank Lloyd Wright.”
The first installment was Quintessential Arizona and included the Grand Canyon, Canyon de Chelly, Monument Valley, Rainbow Bridge, Tonto Natural Bridge, Kartchner Caverns, Petried Forest and Painted Desert, Meteor Crater and Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon.
Future segments will include historic and festive Arizona.
