Arizona destinations Flagstaff, Sedona, and the Salt River / Pima Maricopa Indian Community have partnered together with AmericanTours and its Drive America platform to inspire travel advisors across America to plan their customer’s next road trip adventure in Arizona.
Road trips will continue to be the dominant travel trend heading into the 2021 summer travel season and AmericanTours (ATI) has developed a discounted and commissionable road trip adventure package featuring the destinations of Salt River, Sedona, and Flagstaff that travel advisors can easily book or completely customize for their clients on americantours.com.
The adventure starts just west of Scottsdale and only 15 minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, amidst the desert landscapes of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community. Home to two distinct tribes, the Akmiel O’Odham and Xalchidom Piipaash, more commonly known as the Pima and Maricopa, this community continues to thrive by maintaining cultural ties to the land, creating exhibiting experiences at the Talking Stick Entertainment District and developing revolutionary enterprises like the USS Arizona Memorial Gardens.
The road trip heads north up I-17 to world famous Sedona, a nature lover’s paradise. With 400+ miles of trails, visitors have instant access to some of the country’s best hiking and biking trails. At night, stargazers marvel at the miraculous star-scape. Known as a place of spiritual influence, Sedona’s vortexes are believed to unleash powerful energy. And as Native Americans did centuries before, the area spas use indigenous materials for relaxation and healing. Sedona is an art mecca for artists and collectors alike. Its dramatic landscape and ever-changing light inspires artists of all levels, and the world-renowned art galleries are the perfect enclave to showcase their incredible work.
Continuing along scenic State Route 89A to Flagstaff, discover the awe-inspiring beauty of this friendly mountain town! Situated at the base of the majestic San Francisco Peaks at 7,000 feet elevation, Flagstaff offers an eclectic mix of simplicity in the great outdoors with a hint of urban culture.
