Fortunately for Valley residents, they need only venture a few hours north or south to find some of the very best the state has to offer.
From the gorgeous red rocks of Sedona to the beautiful Sonoran deserts of Tuscon, AZ Foothills readers share their choice escapes in Arizona.
These are AZ Foothills Best of Our Valley 2021 contest winners. Winners will be featured in the 2021 issues of Arizona Foothills Magazine, a tell-all guide to the best people and places in the Valley of the Sun, as chosen by its residents.
As a special thanks to the winners and those who helped them attain their Best Of status, a celebratory bash will be held in May 2021. Stay tuned for details on the fabulous fete!
