Vegetarians may want to think twice about vacationing in Arizona. This is beef country, and cowboy steakhouses are a way of life in these parts. That said, there are actually plenty of options for meatless dining throughout the state. However, you'll find the greatest variety of vegetarian restaurants in Phoenix, Tucson, Sedona, and Flagstaff. Two of my favorite vegetarian places around the state include Tucson's Lovin' Spoonfuls and Macy's European Coffee House & Bakery, a cool college-town cafe in Flagstaff. In Phoenix, the Ethiopian restaurant Café Lalibela is not strictly vegetarian, but it has lots of vegetarian options.
