Cheap gas prices + the weekend = a few road hitting ideas from your pals at Arizona Highways… First: pick up the August issue for our latest scenic drive. Stop when you hit that cool swimming hole.
- Looking for a little history, plus a drive with breathtaking views and stunning open spaces? Try our Williamson Valley Road drive that starts in Seligman. Make sure you take some time to explore this little town, which also happens to be the birth place of Route 66 before hoping in your ride.
- Folks in and around the Tucson area might consider following Kathy Montgomery’s drive on Redington Road (FR 371). This former military supply route makes for a beautiful, half-day drive that offers recreation, ranching and history.
- Indian Road 6910 on the Navajo Indian Reservation is another rewarding drive, especially for those looking for water… specifically Grand Falls. The road can be rough, but the highlight is seeing the smooth water of “Chocolate Falls”, Grand Falls’ other — very appropriate — nickname.
