Antelope Canyon is a popular slot canyon in northern Arizona – made up of two canyons, Upper and Lower. They’re made of sandstone and have earned their famous shape due to erosion from flood waters. While you are able to visit the canyons, you do have to be a part of a professional tour. The land is owned by the Navajo Tribe and they manage all tours. Antelope Canyon is less than 2-hours northeast of the Grand Canyon and approximately 30 miles from Utah border in the city of Page, Arizona.

Tombstone, a dusty little mining town with a big reputation. What was once a booming mining town that later became a ghost town, is now a popular tourist destination. It’s located 3 hours south of the Phoenix Valley and only about 50 miles from the Mexico border. Tombstone was founded in 1879 by Ed Schieffelin, a prospector.
