I’m excited to be working on a collaboration of the perfect packing lists for various vacations to be posted in the coming days. As a precursor to any perfect packing list, I thought it’ll be helpful to also share my top tips for packing light and traveling with only a carry-on.

There are multiple places in and around Arizona, but here are a few of my personal favorites. This list includes the Grand Canyon and some others that I have been to on more than one occasion and have always loved to come back to.

This makes it a great paradise for many backpackers as well as honeymooners looking for a great time.
