Katie Lawrence is a Southeast Texas native who graduated 18th in her high school class with a GPA of 4.25. She attended college in the Houston area and began writing for OnlyInYourState in 2015.
Today, Katie writes, edits, and performs several other tasks for OnlyInYourState and has never been more passionate about a job before. Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on with a hot cup of coffee, practicing yoga, baking, or exploring the beautiful Lone Star State (in particular, the vast and mystical West Texas desert).
From eating dinner at Medieval Times to spending the night in a lakefront estate, Arizona has no shortage of opportunities to visit a bonafide castle. You can now add a library to the list, as the Irish Cultural Center in Phoenix is modeled after a 12th-century Norman castle. Check it out:
