Information of particular interest to outdoorsy types can be found on the website for Arizona State Parks, which administers 30 properties around the state. The National Park Service website has links to 26 Arizona parks, monuments, and other properties operated by the NPS, including Grand Canyon, Saguaro, and Petrified Forest national parks.
There’s a handful of excellent general-interest sites related to travel in Arizona. A good bet is the Arizona Republic–sponsored AzCentral.com, which provides news, reviews, and travel information on the entire state, with a particular emphasis on Phoenix. Alternative newsweeklies are another helpful resource, among them the Phoenix New Times. For the southern part of the state, look for Tucson Weekly. In Flagstaff and north-central Arizona, check out Flagstaff Live. GayArizona.comlists gay-friendly accommodations, nightlife, and other businesses around the state.
