Arizona is the star of the Southwest, featuring canyons, cacti, deserts, mountains, ghost towns, Indian tribes and – of course – abundant sunshine.
Arizona’s capital city, Phoenix, is the eighth largest and one of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S. The city and its extensive suburbs are known collectively as the Valley of the Sun and are very popular as a warm winter resort. 110 miles southeast is Tucson, which is more compact and slightly cooler than Phoenix. It has an attractive location on a wide, cacti-filled plain enclosed on most sides by rocky mountain ranges.
The state’s most famous destination is the Grand Canyon, drawing millions of visitors each year. But there are also hundreds of miles of scenic land with many other canyons large and small waiting to be explored. Several artificial lakes, formed by dams on the Salt and Colorado rivers, provide many recreational opportunities and a welcome relief from the summer heat.
One quarter of the land is occupied by Indian reservations – the largest percentage of any state.
Among the tribes, the Navajo, Apache and Hopi all occupy extensive areas where traditional life continues largely unaffected by mainstream U.S. culture.
