Arizonans Are The Best At These 10 Things, Hands Down
We hate to brag, but Arizonans are pretty darn talented. From outdoor pursuits to the preservation of our state’s history, Arizonans are the best at these 10 things, hands down.
1. We're active, year-round.
We think Arizona is the most beautiful state, and we like to get outdoors to play! Arizonans are expert outdoor enthusiasts, and we're also well-versed on how to stay alive in sometimes harsh conditions (preparedness is key!)
2. But we also really know how to relax.
We believe there's no reason to stress about life! We've mastered the art of relaxation, and we're all the healthier and well-adjusted for it!
3. Arizonans really know how to golf.
With weather like this all year long, and dozens of incredible golf courses, it's logical that we'd be good at golf, right? Weeell...that's not always true - some people just don't have that kind of talent. But one thing IS for sure: Arizonans are really good at knowing how golf is
supposed to be played!
4, We're also pretty good at playing in the snow.
Some people think that Arizona is nothing but a vast desert...well, we can certainly prove them wrong! We love to play in our snow, and many of us are quite proficient at skiing.
5. We're experts at dealing with crazy weather.
Extreme heat, snow storms, monsoons and those beautiful, horrible haboobs - we're unfazed. When a huge dust storm hits, we carry on. Monsoon? No problem! We know how to hunker down and get through the most volatile weather in the country.
6. We're excellent at socializing...
Looking for a great party? Arizonans sure know how to throw one! Whether it's a small backyard BBQ, or an epic resort pool party, we've got this covered.
7. ...But we also know exactly where to go to be alone.
Arizonans have plenty of wide, open spaces to visit, and we recognize the value of some self-reflection and solitude.
8. We really know our Mexican food.
You'll have to actually go to Mexico to find better Mexican food! We even improved on it a little. What's better than a burrito? A deep-fried burrito (aka chimichanga), which Arizonans invented.
9. People here are good swimmers.
When it gets hots here, we know the best place to cool off - swimming pools!Many of us have our own backyard pools, but even those who don't have access to public pools. We learn to swim as small children in Arizona.
10. Arizonans are the best at preserving our state's history.
Sure, some of those east coast states have buildings dating back to the 1700s...but Arizona has cliff dwellings that are estimated to be as old as AD 1250. We care deeply for our history, and make sure to preserve it.
What else are the residents of our state particularly great at doing? Tell us in the comments!
