Have you ever taken a few minutes to listen to “Arizona” by Rex Allen, Jr.? It was adopted as our alternate state song in 1981 and for good reason.

Whether you’re away from Arizona for the summer—or for a much longer duration—you might relate to some of these reasons as to why this land will always feel like home.

We live in one incredible state! Looking for other reasons to think about your home state? Check out this article on things you can only experience right here in Arizona.
