PHOENIX -- Experiencing Arizona’s diverse recreation destinations and unique cultural sites just got a little easier.
The Arizona Office of Tourism (AOT), in collaboration with the Arizona Council for Enhancing Recreation & Tourism (ACERT), is proud to present the online version of the Recreation & Cultural Sites Map. The interactive map is available online on The Arizona Experience website and is equally accessible via personal computer or tablet.
ACERT is a group of federal, state, universities and not-for-profit organizations working together to bring attention to the diverse cultural and recreation visitor opportunities on public lands and tribal areas throughout the State of Arizona.
ACERT has produced a printed version of the Recreation & Cultural Sites Map for the past two decades. The popular visitor resource promotes Arizona’s national parks and monuments, federal recreational areas, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) sites, State Parks, Tribal attractions, and statewide cultural and historical locations.
Information found on the map details where travelers can boat, fish, raft, canoe, swim, view mountain vistas or wildlife, find cultural and historical locations, ride equestrian trails, locate hiking or biking trails and campsites all through Arizona.
“The Recreation & Cultural Sites Map is an exceptional tool for our visitors and now we are able to offer this helpful resource online,” said Sherry Henry, AOT director. “This map goes beyond the standard map and highlights Arizona’s exciting recreation and natural attributes as well as the diverse cultural, historical and archeological sites found throughout the state.”
The interactive map is hosted on The Arizona Experience website, which commemorates Arizona’s Centennial and is a great companion website to AOT’s consumer website, arizonaguide.com.
The online map can be viewed at arizonaexperience.org. A printed version of the Recreation & Cultural Sites map is still available and can be found at the more than 60 Local Visitor Information Centers. It can also be picked up at State Parks, National Parks, BLM, U.S. Forest and AZ Game and Fish sites located across Arizona. Printed maps are also available from the Arizona Office of Tourism.
