The state is made up of a lot of wide, open spaces. It's the embodiment of the stereotypical 'west' and people see it as a place where their children will be able to run and enjoy themselves without causing a problem.

Explore Arizona Tours sees more families with young children considering Arizona tours and destinations. Explore Arizona suggests this is not a surprise as the state is child friendly in several ways.
Tyson Bailey of Explore Arizona Tours suggested, "The state is made up of a lot of wide, open spaces. It's the embodiment of the stereotypical 'west' and people see it as a place where their children will be able to run and enjoy themselves without causing a problem." Arizona also has mild winters. Families with young children appreciate this aspect because it decreases the hassle of traveling with children. Traveling in colder climates requires a lot more luggage (especially when you have 2 or 3 small children). Arizona also has a propensity to host family friendly functions all year long. There are tons of Arizona tours to choose from.
For instance, a few upcoming, family friendly events include: the 7th Annual Desert Shrimp Fest in Gila Bend (Nov. 7 & 8th), Music Under the Stars at ASU Music Building (Nov. 6th), Zoo Lights (holiday lights display late November through early January at the Phoenix Zoo), the Renaissance Festival (late winter/early spring annually), and more.
Child friendly venues that are popular for Arizona visitors all year long include: Desert Botanical Gardens, Phoenix Zoo, Pioneer Living History Village, Taliesin West, Adobe Mountain Railroad Park, Carefree Sundial (one of the world's largest sundials-90 feet across), Fountain Park (home to the world's tallest fountain), Arizona Science Center, Lowell Observatory, the Arboretum at Flagstaff, Mystery Castle…and more.
Families visiting with young children tend to schedule longer trips with a number of activities to fulfill the vacation needs of the varying ages in the group. Parents looking for amazing tour packages appropriate for children typically enjoy Arizona jeep tours, Grand Canyon helicopter tours, short hiking tours and the Astronomy Overnight Camping Excursion in Sedona.
