If you do plan to travel to Arizona during the summer, you can be assured that it really does not seem as hot as the thermometer leads people to believe!  Take it from me, someone who grew up in Wisconsin... I personally find the summers in Arizona more bearable.  The humidity is typically much less here in the summer than in other parts of the country which is why people often say that “it’s a dry heat.” 

So head to Phoenix, Sedona, Flagstaff, Tucson, Bisbee, Tombstone, the White Mountains, Lake Havasu, Scottsdale, Yuma, Gold Canyon, where you will find the famous Superstition Mountains along with two great golf courses and breathtaking views, Williams, and of course… the Grand Daddy of them all… the Grand Canyon!

If you want to enjoy outdoor activities away from the water during the summer months during your stay, I would suggest doing them early in the morning when it is often very comfortable… in fact, many days are in the 80’s for a good part of the morning.  If you are going to be on the water, then being out in the hot afternoon will be quite pleasurable with the cool refreshing water!  Just make sure you bring plenty of sunscreen and water.  Make sure to drink lots of water!
