Glittering Las Vegas, the “City that Never Sleeps” is the gateway to spending some warm winter days in the Southwest. First stop visit the majestic Grand Canyon! Then continue to Sedona, where red sandstone formations appear to glow in brilliant orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. Further south Phoenix is the anchor of the Phoenix metropolitan area, also known as the Valley of the Sun. One of the biggest attractions of the Phoenix area is golf, with over 200 golf courses. Visit Tombstone, a historic city founded in 1877 by prospector Ed Schieffelin and best known as the site of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral. Back to Tucson, which anchors the Arizona Sun Corridor and is known for its mild winters. Then it’s on to San Diego on the coast of the Pacific Ocean, called “the birthplace of California”. The city is known for its mild year-round climate, natural deep-water harbor, and extensive beaches, and has one of the top-ten best climates in the United States. Tourist attractions include Balboa Park, Belmont amusement park, San Diego Zoo, San Diego Zoo Safari Park, and SeaWorld San Diego. San Diego’s Spanish and Mexican heritage is reflected in many historic sites across the city, such as Mission San Diego de Alcalá and Old Town San Diego State Historic Park.
