Arizona is probably best known for its arid deserts and the magnificent Grand Canyon. It’s inviting weather all year round makes the state a perfect winter playground for snowbirds from across the nation. The state is so much more than that.
Steer off the beaten path, and Arizona will take you beyond the tourist’s cliches. Start exploring and you’ll see its diverse landscape in all its glory: pine and spruce tree forests of Northern Arizona, the Colorado Plateau and the San Francisco Mountains. There is even snow!
Today, about one-quarter of the state consists of Indian reservations, home of 27 federally recognized Native American tribes, including the Navajo Nation, which is the largest in the US. And after English and Spanish, the Navajo language is the most widely spoken in the state. Cost of living in most of the state is still more affordable than the national average and jobs are bountiful. The state’s economy is quite diverse. And over the past few years, Arizona has seen significant economic gains from businesses expanding and relocating from neighboring California and other states. But government, transportation, and healthcare still remain the largest employers.
Besides the natural wonders, the state has just about any art-related pastime one can enjoy: from Broadway-style shows and ballet to classical music and rock concerts. And those looking to learn more about Native American history and culture will be able to enjoy a generous supply of museums showcasing historical and contemporary works. Foodies will find themselves in culinary heaven, while wine aficionados can sip on finest Arizona-grown wines.
