Must-See Natural Wonders in Arizona

Quebedeaux Mitsubishi is fortunate enough to be located in one of the most beautiful states in our country. There are so many natural wonders in Arizona that you could go to one a month and still not see them all in a year. Here are some of our favorite Arizona road trip destinations.

Antelope Canyon

You’ve probably seen pictures of this otherworldly canyon. Its smooth, sweeping walls and the shadowy lighting have a distinct look. You’ll find Antelope Canyon near Page, Arizona.

Coal Mine Canyon

This big, open canyon provides a breathtaking view that any traveler could appreciate. Tucked away discretely between Tuba City and Kykotsmovi, it’s easy to miss, but you’ll be sorry if you did.

Havasu Falls

Of course the Grand Canyon is on our list of must-see Arizona spots. But that’s a big place, and if we had to pick a special corner within the canyon, it would be Havasu Falls. Beautiful blue waters and an energetic, mystical waterfall are the perfect break from the red rocks of the canyon.

Lake Havasu State Park

Arizona has more to offer than its many beautiful canyons. A getaway with tropical undertones lies within state borders at Lake Havasu State Park. Palm trees and white sand run along the Colorado River and Lake Havasu for a sweet taste of paradise.

The Best Arizona Boat Adventures

Boating isn’t the first thing you imagine when you think of the dry deserts and sprawling canyons of Arizona, but you’d be surprised to find that there are tons of lakes and rivers in the state that offer some of the most fun boat adventures you’ll find anywhere. Here are the best Arizona boat adventures to check out this summer.

The Saguaro Lake has the Desert Belle, a big ferry that cruises around the river and even features music on weekend nights. You can also get on a tour boat in Lake Havasu City and tour the Colorado River or take a twilight dinner cruise on Canyon Lake. If you’d rather steer the boat yourself, though, there are plenty of lakes and rivers for that too.

Go kayaking in the Colorado River at Black Canyon and see the emerald green cove, or rent a paddleboard and take it out on Lake Powell, a beautiful lake surrounding by towering rock. For a more urban experience, take a pedal boat for two out on Tempe Town Lake. And of course there’s no better way to spend your weekend getaway than with the water to wine tour on the Verde River, located near the Alcantara Vineyard.

Best Arizona Campgrounds to Visit this Summer

Arizona is a beautiful state, and there are tons of campgrounds where you’ll discover things you never expected. Whether you’re an Arizona native or you’re just visiting, here are some of the best Arizona campgrounds to check out this summer!

One campground is Bear Canyon Campground, which is located on Bear Canyon Lake and surrounded by trees for a secluded experience. If you’re looking for a spot on the water, another option is Hilltop Campground, which is on Lynx Lake in the Prescott National Forest.

The Dairy Springs Campground in Coconino National Forest is near Lake Mormon and is teeming with plenty of gorgeous hiking trails. Coconino is actually home to quite a few beautiful campgrounds, like Pine Flat Campground near Oak Creek and Manzanita Campground.

Christopher Creek Campground in Tonto National Forest is on a first-come first-serve basis and is located on the Mogollon Rim. If you want to stay at the Grand Canyon for a while instead of just taking a day trip, camp overnight in Grand Canyon National Park at the Desert View Campground, which has 50 available sites.

Spring Car Cleaning Tips

Cleaning your car in winter sounds miserable, no matter what climate you live in. The cold weather is slowly fading, which means warm spring weather will be arriving soon. Take the time to clean your car now so you can enjoy the weather when it finally arrives. Check out these informative spring car cleaning tips from us here at Quebedeaux Mitsubishi.

 

  • Wheels – While you may expect a massive amount of dirt and grime to have built up in the wheels, odds are you’ll still be surprised by how much is hidden by the hubcaps. Remove the hubcaps in order to begin scrubbing the wheels and wheel wells. Doing so reduces the wear on your tires and rims, while also reducing the chance of any major problems in the future.
  • Trunk – Many drivers tend to throw items right into the trunk if they don’t need it at that moment. Spring is soon approaching, which means now is a great time to dig everything out in preparation of picnics and traveling.
  • Windows – Wet salt can do a number on your windows and can blur your vision. Use window cleaner and a towel to leave behind a crystal clear view that allows you to take in your surroundings; don’t forget about the windshield.

 

These simple cleaning tips should get your car shining bright for spring. If you decide you want a new vehicle, feel free to visit us here at Quebedeaux Mitsubishi and we’ll be happy to help!
