1.Riding a mule into the Grand Canyon
To kickstart the list of 5 things guys can only do in Arizona: here is our first activity. How can we not mention the Grand Canyon when talking about Arizona? There are many canyons to explore when in Arizona, but the one you should not miss is the Grand Canyon.
Created over millions of years by the mighty Colorado River, the Grand Canyon is a sight to cherish. The southern rim of this massive gorge is known for its dramatic rock walls and splendid beauty. Schedule your visit in the late afternoon and you will be able to witness the delighted view of reds, yellows, purple, and oranges as the sun hits the deep ravines.
You can head down into the Canyon, but if you are not into it, there are many lookout spots along the edge of the rim. But, that’s not all there’s to it. Here is another one of the things guys can do but girls can’t: you can ride a mule into the Grand Canyon! It is a 5-hour trip to the Phantom ranch where steak dinner is served in a picnic style!

2. Visit the Petrified Forest
Nestled near the New Mexico border on the Arizona side is one of the most unique national treasures of the world. The Petrified Forest is hidden inside the Painted Desert. You can spend a day driving through the area, visiting the paleo lab, and taking tours.
If you want to bicycle or hike, trails are available as you walk through the countryside and look for petrified wood, animals, and flowers. From grand chasms to cliffs, you can visit many beautiful sights that run through the Painted Desert. And, if you would rather spend your day indoors, you can get a vacation package at Phoneix or Sedona!
3. Walking in Tucson’s All Souls Procession
Here is another one of the things guys can do better than women, rather, guys would enjoy better than women: take part in Tucson’s All Souls Procession.
Honoring the Mexican festival Dia de Los Muertos, you can walk through this procession along with mariachi bands, skeleton bird puppets, bagpipe players, and a host of other people. Sure, you don’t have to paint your face in the skull motif, but why not?
This procession tours the city along with social activists, community helpers, etc., as the volunteers collect prayers and hopes in the form of prayer cards from the passerby. This procession then halts at a crescendo, at a huge four-tiered platform where the prayer cards are lit on fire, releasing the written wishes.
During the fire, Flem Chen dancers, singers, and drummers entertain a massive crowd of over 100,000 people. In Mercado San Augustin, new beginnings are celebrated with dances, music, and a small public market.
4. Have a weekend getaway at Scottdale
Next on the list is having a relaxing getaway at Scottsdale.
Revered for its famous spas, rocking resorts, golf courses, etc., Scottsdale is the heart of Arizona. That means this city should be your home base when you plan on visiting Arizona. Scottsdale is famous for its perpetual sunshine that can be enjoyed throughout the day, and many brewing taprooms to visit if you get tired of the heat.
One can never run out of things to do in Scottsdale! Scottsdale also makes for a fine spot for a bachelor weekend, with its luxury spas and resorts, and not to forget the mesmerizing Scottsdale strippers.
So, here is one of the other things guys can do better than women: enjoy the sight of the Scottsdale strippers!
5. Enjoying the hottest Mexican food at Los Dos Molinos
Looking for things guys can do but girls can’t? Try this! The OG Los Dos Molinos located on 8846 South Central Avenue in Phoenix is known for its authentic spicy New Mexican food. The restaurant’s title is a warning in itself. It refers to chili grinders, implying that the food is too hot to handle!
The head chef of the restaurant has specifically mentioned that they don’t have any mild sauce, simply because they don’t know how to make a mild sauce! If you want to treat your tastebuds to some spice, try their Shrimp Veracruz which is served with red spicy chili sauce over rice and beans!
