PHOENIX — The Grand Canyon is among six iconic images of Arizona that will appear on new signs welcoming visitors to the state.
Gov. Doug Ducey, the Arizona Office of Tourism and the state Department of Transportation unveiled designs for new "Welcome to Arizona" signs that will replace decades-old signs along highways near borders with other states.
