Think of Arizona as America's natural "amusement park," where fun and adventure await your family in every corner of the state. Add an engaging selection of Old West towns, dude ranches, mines, lakes, railroads and other diversions, and the result is a family vacation like no other.
If you’re looking for things to do with kids in Arizona, we have plenty of ideas. Go to the Four Corners and let them stand in four states at once. Enjoy the Junior Ranger program at the Grand Canyon. Or enjoy the state’s many zoos, wildlife parks and kid-friendly museums, like the Arizona Science Center, the Hall of Flame Fire Museum and the Pima Air and Space Museum.
Water activities like swimming, boating, rafting and more are also big hits with the little ones, so make room for a trip to Lake Powell or Lake Mead, or just a ride on Tempe Town Lake, where motorized and non-motorized watercraft cruise the formerly dry riverbed between Tempe and Phoenix.
