15 Things You Quickly Learn When You Move To Arizona
Like many other native Arizonans, I didn’t realize just how great our state is until I left. Once the novelty of a new state (or country) wears off, you realize all the little things you miss about home: the sun, the lack of humidity, the delicious food.
If you’re new to Arizona, though, there are a few things you’ll learn right away about your new home: where are the swarms of bugs, the long stretch of weeks without rain, and how intense that sun can feel. In fact, here are 15 things you’ll probably figure out during your first year here.
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
There’s definitely nothing quite like Arizona! What is something you learned after moving (back) to Arizona?
