This indispensable highway companion maps out day trips that explore the Grand Canyon State.

Along the way, stop and explore the ruins of Indian villages, watery playgrounds, such as Lake Mead, the natural delights of national parklands, and the ghost towns and abandoned gold mines of Arizona’s pioneer days.
