Pinterest is a great resource for travel.

Information on what to pack when riding the rail through Europe to tricks to glamping in Montana are on Pinterest. I wanted to see what the non-native perspective of my home state of Arizona was, so I looked to Pinterest. Here are local landmarks that are a must see when in Phoenix. Hope you have a chance to check out these legendary local landmarks in Arizona!
