NACO — The Turquoise Valley Golf Course is one of those places that makes you wonder if golfers ever tell the truth, either on or off the course.

CAMP VERDE – You don’t need to travel around the globe for an (almost) authentic African safari. Just head to Camp Verde.

The Coronado Cave at the Coronado National Memorial takes you deep inside a majestic wonderland of limestone formations, which began to take shape some 300 million years ago when Arizona was covered by a shallow sea. It’s believed as much as 50,000 gallons of water once flowed through this cave per minute, from east to west.
