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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
