What time is it in Arizona? This is a commonly asked question — and for the most part, this is an easy question to answer — Arizona is in the GMT -7 time zones — but did you know there are actually two time zones in Arizona?

Perhaps two time zones is the wrong way to describe the situation. Instead, most of Arizona does not observe daylight saving time while a small part does. As a result, most of Arizona uses Mountain Standard Time (MST) which is GMT -7 for the entire year while part of Arizona uses Mountain Daylight Time (MDT) which is GMT -6 from the second Sunday in March until the first Sunday of November.

Although the most important places in Arizona are in the GMT -7 time zones, keep reading to learn more about Arizona.

Daylight Saving Time

Although most of Arizona does not observe daylight saving time (DST), there are few towns that do. The towns in Arizona that do observe daylight saving time are part of the Navajo Nation. The Navajo Nation chooses to observe daylight saving time because their nation is also located within Utah and New Mexico.

Some of the towns in Arizona that do observe daylight saving time include:

Tuba City, Kayenta, Window Rock, Ganado

What's interesting is that the Hopi Nation is located within the Navajo Nation. Yet, towns within the Hopi Nation do not observe daylight saving time. Examples include:

Old Oraibi, Hotevilla–Bacavi
