Spring break is almost here! Don’t worry if you haven’t booked a trip yet, I’m sharing my tips for planning an epic Arizona road trip. An Arizona road trip is perfect if you live here or in a nearby state. Bonus points if you fly out to here to take a road trip! Check out my suggested Arizona road trip stops and combine the ones that appeal to your family to create your own Arizona road trip adventure.
Southern Arizona Road Trip Stops
Tucson Area Outdoor Attractions
- Reid Park Zoo
- Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum
- Colossal Cave
- Arizona Zipline Adventures
- Trail Rides at the El Conquistador Stables
- Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch
- Saguaro National Park
Tucson Area Indoor Attractions
- AZ Air Time

There are several fun resorts in the Tucson area. My favorites would be the Hilton El Conquistador, Ritz-Carlton at Dove Mountain, and JW Marriott Starr Pass because they all have extra fun water features. My boys love a good waterslide, splash pad or lazy river!
Bisbee & Tombstone Attractions
- Queen Mine Tour
- O.K. Corral
- Kartchner Caverns
I have always wanted to stay at the Shady Dell, they feature 9 fully restored vintage aluminum travel trailers from the 1940’s and 1950’s. How fun is that!??
Phoenix Area Road Trip Stops
Phoenix Area Outdoor Attractions
- Wildlife World Zoo
- Phoenix Zoo
- McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park
- Cactus League Spring Training
Phoenix Area Indoor Attractions
- LEGOLAND Discovery Center
- Arizona Science Center
- SEA LIFE Arizona

There are a lot of fun resorts in the Phoenix area. I’ve personally stayed at (and enjoyed) the Wigwam Resort in the West Valley and the Westin Kierland and Fairmont Scottsdale resorts in the East Valley.
Northern Arizona Road Trip Stops
Williams & the Grand Canyon
- Grand Canyon South Rim
- Grand Canyon Railway
When choosing your train package, I recommend booking an overnight stay at the Maswik Lodge. It gives you extra time to leisurely explore the South Rim of the canyon.
Sedona & Jerome
- Pink Jeep Tours
- Blazin’ M Ranch
- Slide Rock
- Explore Jerome Landmarks
Sedona offers the most lodging options for the area, but if you are willing to stay in a ghost town you can find a place to stay in Jerome. We had a comfortable stay the Hilton Sedona Resort a few years ago.
Pack Road Trip Essentials
Whether you’re headed out for a long or short road trip, there are a few essentials you should always keep on hand to stay comfortable and safe.
- Paper towels or baby wipes
- Plastic bags
- Charging cables and external battery packs for devices
- Allstate’s Good Hands Rescue® app
Just in case, you should install the Good Hands Rescue® app on your phone or tablet before your trip. It can help with lots of mishaps including flat tires and dead batteries.
We recently had trouble at home with a dead battery. The glove box of my car doesn’t latch well and so the glove box light would stay on. We didn’t realize it because the glove looked closed. Over time it drained our battery until one morning when of course we were running late, the car wouldn’t start. It was annoying and inconvenient but we were home and my husband could drive the kids to school and jump start my car with his truck. If the battery had stopped working on the road, we wouldn’t have had an extra vehicle to help us out! It would have been Good Hands Rescue® app to the “rescue” for us!
