11 Ways Arizona Is America’s Black Sheep…And We Love It That Way
If you were to select a few adjectives to describe Arizona, what would you choose? Beautiful? Majestic? Dusty? Weird? That last one might seem a little out of place but I disagree! Arizona can be one odd state, especially if you’re not from anywhere in the desert southwest. If you’re not convinced, here are just a few reasons our home state is a little odd and we’re fine with that.
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/
