NOGALES, Ariz. - It might just be the best spot in Arizona to see wildlife up close, and there's actually a beach.

Are you looking for places to explore with the kids? Day one of our spring break parks guide starts at Patagonia Lake State Park.

Hit the road down to southeastern Arizona, about a three-hour trek from Phoenix. That is where you'll hit Patagonia Lake State Park.

Here, you'll find beaches, boating, even boat-in camp sites. Vacationers can rent boats and grab supplies at the Lakeside Market.

Don't want to fork out the cash to rent a boat? The park offers several weekend boat tours for only $5 a person.

You can also spend your day fishing, hiking, grilling for a picnic or wildlife watching. History buffs may even find remnants of the old New Mexico/Arizona railroad at the Nature Conservancy and some of those tracks are said to lie beneath the lake.

It's a less crowded spring break destination with all of the benefits of the beach and water.

For more information about Patagonia Lake and other Arizona State Parks to visit throughout the year, visit the Arizona State Parks website.
