Phoenix, Arizona, is renowned for being one of the top cities in the USA for scenic hikes that will take your breath away. The city sits in the middle of the desert but is punctuated and surrounded by many hills and mountains that offer great views of the area. If you’re visiting the city and staying with friends, family, or in a great IHG hotel in Phoenix, then you have to take in at least one of these trails. These rocky outcrops are just waiting to be explored!
You might have been thinking about going to the US for a holiday – and why not? Whether it’s a road trip, a jolly around New York, or a crazy-exciting holiday to Orlando’s theme parks, they’re all guaranteed to be super fun. It’s just there’s one big headache that comes about when you’re planning these trips…actually getting there.

Flagstaff, Arizona, is a beautiful northern city that boasts a hippy/lumberjack feel in extremely cool surroundings. The city is around a 4-hour drive north from Tucson and a 2-hour drive North of the state capital, Phoenix.

Flagstaff is considerably colder than its fellow Arizonan cities, so you should pack some long sleeves and trousers!

Travelling is often a fierce and unwavering passion for some. They enjoy the thrill of seeing a new location, visiting a different country, or indulging in a new culture.

However, if we are honest, many bucket lists can be quite generic and it seems that people are lacking imagination when it comes to devising their own.
