ARIZONA

Arizona offers a diverse landscape—from vast deserts to lush pine forests—but its most phenomenal characteristic is certainly the Grand Canyon. In contrast, the state capital, Phoenix, is a bustling metropolitan area with a large population and towering skyscrapers. The state’s rich Native American history contributes to its culture and personality, with numerous federally recognized tribes active today.
