Believe It Or Not, This Tiny Town In Arizona Is One Of The Best In The Country
Arizona has some pretty cool little towns dotted around the state, each with their own culture and personality. We’ve highlighted quite a few of these places in the past and each one represents a unique aspect of Arizona: history, nature, economy, and a hope for the future. One town we’re going to look at today sits in the southern portion of the state, less than an hour from the U.S.-Mexico border. Let’s check it out!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
