    Pretty much this.


    However, if you're willing to drive a bit outside of that... AZ has a lot to offer.

    Wickenburg and points north or you can go up to the top of the Harquahalla Mountains or Harcuvar Mountains out west!

    I would also watch your speed, Surprise PD doesn't like speeders too much.

    If you gave any dirt bikes...speedworld is close. There are a lot of mining towns within a 2hr drive. If the road isn't iced over, the back way into prescott from wickenburg is fun. There are a lot of things to do in AZ, just throw out some ideas and we can point you in the direction!

    Like the others have said, so much to do and see if you are driving your truck there are hundreds of trails to take.
    Touristy stuff, the Grand Canyon is something most folks have to see, Sedona has some great rocks and views, there are some great native ruins to see if you like that stuff.
    Kind of depends on what you want to do or see.
