    Unfortunately, that's simply not specific enough of a route for us to be able to help you. At a minimum, we would need to know whether you plan to follow (basically) I-40 to Flagstaff and/or Phoenix, or US-70/US-60/I-10 to Tucson.


  3. Default

    AZ Buck, Unfortunately we have not gotten that far yet. We do know we will be in Phoenix.As far as mapping with highways we have not done any of that yet. I think this website will help with that. I asked this question without really looking I could get all my answers here. So glad I found this. Thanks for your prompt responce.

    Default Phoenix Will Do

    If you're headed for anywhere in 'northern' Arizona, including Phoenix, then your route of choice will be I-40 for most of the way through the states you mentioned. In that case, some of the most visited attractions along that route would be the Oklahoma city Memorial, Cadillac ranch outside Amarillo, Petroglyph National Monument outside Albuquerque, and Petrified Forest National Park. I'd also suggest that you look at leaving I-40 at Holbrook ad using AZ-377/AZ-277/AZ-260/AZ-87 down through Payson as a scenic route into northeastern Phoenix. You'll have enough time in the area for some short trips up through Sedona and Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon later in the season.
