Tuba City, Arizona: One of the largest communities within the Navajo Nation. The location, within Arizona’s Painted Desert, is scenic and peaceful. The badlands desert is in the area of the Four Corners from the Grand Canyon leading into Petrified Forest National Park and offering many things to do and see within a short range. The Navajo people have lived in the region for around five hundred years, while residents of the Hopi tribe have been settled there for almost 1000 years.

Get details on the many things to do in Tuba City Arizona including visiting a rare painted desert Canyon and learning about the Navajo Code Talkers from WWII.
