The Southwest may be known for its heat, but that's no reason to skip out on this naturally beautiful region. Nature lovers will adore Arizona's mountainous desert terrain, especially the dramatic red rocks of Sedona. A must-see spot in New Mexico is the artsy community of Santa Fe, whose breathtaking mountain landscapes inspired painter Georgia O'Keeffe. Those not set on exploring nature will enjoy Austin, Texas, the music capital of the world, as well as a little place known as Las Vegas.
