Finding a native Arizonan is a bit like a Where’s Waldo search these days; we are few and far between thanks to the large number of transplants. Usually, a quick question can determine if someone is from this state but sometimes the things they say or do can give us insight into how long a person has (or has not) been here. Here’s are a few signs that someone may not actually be from Arizona.
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/
