Arizona is most notable as the Grand Canyon State. Now that's certainly something to be proud of but there's much more to this desert-mountain state than the wondrous Grand Canyon.
We're here to tell you about some places that are uniquely Arizona. Check out what locum tenens jobs are available in Arizona now then feel free to add the following locales to your itinerary.
This town screams genuine American grit. Keep in mind Tombstone is a touch more touristy nowadays but once you step foot in this old frontier town you'll be instantly transported to a time where gunfights were a regular occurrence and Wild West legends were indelibly burned into its history.
It's true, Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday and the Clanton Brothers all stepped foot here. It's true that the O.K. Corral is here, too. The only gunfights that happen now are the live reenactments that are held on almost every street corner.
Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum
Are you looking for the chance to view Arizona up close? You can do just that at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson. All the trappings of the Sonoran Desert (and then some) can be found here. Awesome birds of prey indigenous to this massive desert show off their free-flight skills right in front of your eyes. Most of the museum is outside, too, so you'll get a true first-hand experience complete with distinct desert flora and fauna.
We have a feeling that you can already guess what you'll witness at Bearizona Wildlife Park. There are black bears aplenty of course. You'll encounter wolves, bison and mountain goats among other wildlife, too. Keep in mind that you'll be respectfully – and safely – viewing these animals in their ponderosa pine habitat from the comfort of your own car. Or you can travel by tour bus, too.
