Arizona is a land of contrasts. As summer's heat subsides, fall creeps down the San Francisco Peaks of northern Flagstaff, triggering fall's golden hues. As the weather cools, Grand Canyon National Park yields smaller crowds, prime hiking trails, and readily accessible amenities. A ride through Oak Creek Canyon to Sedona makes a delightful fall getaway – by motorcyle or car, this is the season for Arizona.
In central Arizona, the Phoenix metro area features plenty to do. The NFL's Arizona Cardinals fill the stands at University of Phoenix Stadium, while MLB's Arizona Diamondbacks play under the stars as Chase Field opens the roof on cool evenings. Dubbed the Valley of the Sun, Phoenix includes Scottsdale, Mesa, Tempe, and Goodyear among this growing metropolis.
Fall also brings Arizona's univerisities back to life, and ignites the beginning of college football. Catch Tempe's Arizona State University Sun Devils at Tempe Diablo Stadium, or visit Thunder and the rest of the 'Lopes at Grand Canyon University. Visit the University of Arizona Wildcats in southern Arizona's Tucson, or anticipate games with the Northern Arizona University Lumberjacks in northern Arizona.
