The Top 5 Places To Go In October In Arizona

The Top 5 Places To Go In October In Arizona

Savor the Foliage in the White Mountains

“Leaf peeping” provides a feast for the eyes throughout October for Arizona residents and visitors. The White Mountains in eastern Arizona are among the best places to see gorgeous fall foliage in early October. The leaves of the area’s Gambel oaks and aspen trees turn yellow and orange, blanketing the landscape with rich autumn colors. Try to visit in the first three weeks of October for the most beautiful autumn sights.

Find Spooks at Old Tucson Studios

Old Tucson Studios is a year-round attraction that offers Halloween-themed scariness only in October. Nightfall at Old Tucson is a prime stop for horror lovers. Not all attractions are suitable for children, so leave little ones at home. Explore an entire haunted town that features a horror train, death row, mad scientists and various hideous creatures. Check the schedule before visiting to attend one of the live musical and comedy stage shows.

Enjoy Flagstaff’s Many Natural Attractions

Flagstaff sits at the base of the San Francisco Peaks, less than an hour from the Grand Canyon. Flagstaff features a few natural attractions near the city's outskirts such as the Sunset Crater Volcano, Walnut Canyon and Wupatki national monuments. With its Coconino National Forest, Flagstaff is one of the loveliest places to enjoy the changing colors of fall leaves in October. If you’re feeling adventurous, try the 1.8-mile hike that’s known as the Aspen Nature Loop for picture-perfect views of autumn leaves. 

Feel Young at Heart at the Arizona State Fair

The Arizona State Fair is one of the state's largest annual events, beginning in the early or middle part of October. Come to relive childhood memories of fairs, savor delicious carnival food and enjoy one of the most festive October traditions the state has to offer. Contribute to the fair yourself by entering one of its many competitions. Whether you enjoy cooking, photography, science or home arts, competitions are plentiful.

Revel in the Wonder of the Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon often appears on lists as a top natural wonder of the world for many good reasons. Its majestic beauty is divided into two sections. The North Rim is open mid-May to mid-October, and the South Rim is open year-round. See gorgeous fall foliage in the Kaibab National Forest at the North Rim. Observe the Grand Canyon by raft along the Colorado River or explore it on foot. Some visitors even opt to take a helicopter tour to see the overhead view of the canyon.
