My husband and I and our two boys, 14 and 16, are planning a trip to AZ for early spring, probably March. We are traveling from PA. Two years ago we visited for 10 days, spent most of our time in Sedona, with an overnight in Page and an overnight at the Grand Canyon. We had an amazing time and did so much! Ever since we've been talking about going back and heading south rather than north. That's our plan this time. We will be flying into Phoenix and spending a few days in Tucson, thinking maybe 4 or 5 as there seems like a ton of things to do in that area. We will be heading to Sedona again for a few of the days probably at the tail end of the trip (we have a family member who has a vacation home here that we stay in for free, so we are going to take advantage of that again). My question is other than Tucson and Sedona, is there anywhere we should consider spending more than just a day trip? We want to see Tombstone and possibly Bisbee but I am not sure if those are more day trips, or worth staying overnight? In any case, if there are any places that I am completely missing that are worth spending more than a day I'd love to hear about it. About us... outdoors, wildlife, hiking, stargazing, birding, and natural sites are what we love. Shopping and restaurants are not a priority for us :) If there are any "in the desert" nature oriented interesting lodging options I'd love to hear about that as well. I just want to make it super memorable for my boys. Thanks!
