Northern Arizona Heavily Featured In New Arizona 'Welcome' Signs


The Grand Canyon, San Francisco Peaks, Horseshoe Bend and Sedona's Red Rocks are among six iconic Arizona landscapes that will appear on new signs welcoming visitors to the state. 

State officials on Wednesday unveiled designs for new “Welcome to Arizona" signs that will replace decades-old signs along highways near borders with other states.

“These signs showcase Arizona’s unmatched natural beauty,” Governor Doug Ducey said in a release. “More than 55 million people cross Arizona state lines each year, contributing to our economy and local businesses. There’s no better way to welcome visitors to our state than with the natural splendor that is Arizona."

The other two landscapes come from southern Arizona, Saguaro national park near Tucson and Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument along the state's border with Mexico.

All of the images are available for viewing on Gov. Ducey's website.
