The unique mix of metropolitan culture and sheer expanses of desert is what makes the south-western state of Arizona such an appealing destination. The sixth largest of the United States, it possesses so much amazing scenery and tourist attractions that hiring a car in Arizona is almost a given so you can have a fulfilling trip. In certain places The Copper State's climate is a thing of great extremes; winter sports fans will be delighted with the seasonal conditions up at Flagstaff, AZ; while the lower altitudes downstate contribute to a very hot summer.
Arizona is home to the United States' most impressive physical landmark: the Grand Canyon. Part of a National Park, which covers over a million acres of dry, hot desert, the Grand Canyon is more than 250 miles long and exposes millions of years of rock formations to its many tourists - making for a truly unforgettable view. North of Flagstaff, the San Francisco Mountains offer visitors the chance to enjoy its famous ski resorts, which are open all year around - even when the snow has melted, you can't miss out on those stunning views, so hire a car in Arizona once you've landed and get there quick.
The contrast of climates between the north and south of Arizona means that you should be prepared for just about any possible weather condition; if you're driving for a long time in the desert heat be sure to take regular breaks for rest and to take on water. When driving in Arizona you should take much the same safety precautions as on a regular journey - always wear a seatbelt and ensure that your lights are working. Sometimes the weather conditions in Arizona lead to freak occurrences of monsoons or dust storms. In case of the latter it's best not to drive into the dust if you can safely avoid doing so as it can drastically reduce drivers' visibility.
