Flee Circus

The temperature is climbing, and snowbirds are fleeing Phoenix like post-scandal Tiger Woods from a golf tournament. To make matters worse, folks are boycotting Arizona tourism since the illegal immigration bill debacle.

Some might think that it's a good time to get outta Dodge. But why not throw the rest of the country the finger and vacation right here in Arizona? Plan your in-state getaway at the Arizona Highways Travel Show. The event features workshops on topics such as venomous wildlife and scenic photography, plus dozens of vendors offering discounts on everything from Dolly Steamboat cruises to bed & breakfasts along Route 66.
