For statewide travel information, contact the Arizona Office of Tourism (tel. 602/364-3700; https://tourism.az.gov). Nearly every city and town in Arizona has a tourism office or a chamber of commerce that can also provide information.

If you want to load up your smart phone with Arizona-specific apps, I recommend the following. For news and entertainment/event information go to www.azcentral.com (the website for the Arizona Republic, Phoenix's daily newspaper). For making restaurant reservations, the OpenTable app, available from the iTunes app store, is invaluable.
