reasons. Arizona has many historical sites including Canyon de
Chelly, Spider Rock and the Grand Canyon. Arizona has many

Though my favorite thing about Arizona is that I am surrounded by
so many different kinds of people including Indians, Mexicans,
Asians and more!

It’s true that Arizona doesn’t have the best summer climate, but
we have air conditioning, fans, and swimming pools. However, the
winter climate is a winner. For those who get tired of treading
through snow every single day of winter, Arizona is the place for
you. While you’re here, you might want to pay a visit to the Grand
Canyon or Montezuma Castle. Both are very worthwhile sights to see.
Then, when your day is over, you might want to stay in Phoenix,
Tucson, Mesa, Scottsdale, or Chandler. The people here are very
thoughtful and caring (besides Jan Brewer and Sheriff Arpaio BOOM!)

I am proud to be from Arizona. I can be proud to say that it’s a
wonderful state to live in for several reasons.
Arizona is a rough place with hot air and sand but the reason
most people are here is to ride horses and feel the true desert.
The desert here makes you work hard and have fun. The most amazing
part is seeing the full moon in the middle of the desert. If you
ever see a Gila monster do not let it bite you because they are
poisonous. The one thing we are known for is the big mighty saguaro
cactus at home in the desert. The one thing you don’t want to touch
or tap is the jumping cactus. Another unique animal you can see is
a roadrunner running through the desert. I don’t think anyone can
catch it. Now the beautiful part of the morning is the beautiful
sunset rising up to make our day. I’m proud to be an Arizonian
because this state offers amazing sites.
